Round sup­ports Out­back cause

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Cock­burn Lakes Ama­teur Foot­ball Club hopes to fundraise about $6000 for not-for-profit, Out­back Academy Aus­tralia, when it auc­tions off spe­cially de­signed jer­seys af­ter this week­end’s game.

Since 2013, the club has picked one round of the WAAFL sea­son to raise money for a com­mu­nity-driven group.

This year’s re­cip­i­ent was es­tab­lished to sup­port em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and the well-be­ing of Abo­rig­i­nal Aus­tralians.

The jer­sey de­sign is a mix be­tween Cock­burn’s usual jer­sey and that used by wheel­chair bas­ket­ball side, the Red Dust Heel­ers, who are sup­ported by the Academy.

Cock­burn Lakes club sec­re­tary Lee Nott said his side was happy to use the home clash with Se­cret Har­bour to sup­port a group do­ing great work.

For­mer Carl­ton foot­baller Syd Jack­son, cham­pion wheel­chair bas­ket­baller Brad Ness, for­mer West Coast and St Kilda foot­baller Phil Narkle and cham­pion boxer Dar­ryl Kick­ett will be at the game.

Prizes up for grabs in­clude signed AFL jer­seys pro­vided by Fre­man­tle, West Coast and Carl­ton.

The ac­tion be­gins 2.15pm Satur­day at An­ning Park in South Lake.

Cock­burn Lakes vice-cap­tain Sean John­son, club pres­i­dent Lionel McQueen and cap­tain Jar­rad Sym­mans.
