Artist lends help­ing hand to Seahawks

North Coast Weekender - - Sport -

HAND prints will adorn the Brighton Seahawks’ indige­nous jumper to recog­nise a sense of be­long­ing as the club hosts its sec­ond an­nual Naidoc Game in the Metro Foot­ball League.

The third-placed side faces league leaders Queens Park at Kings­bridge Re­serve in But­ler on Sun­day.

Lo­cal artist and Seahawks player Richard Web­s­dale de­signed the guernsey with in­put from indige­nous team­mates Scott Chisholm, of Fre­man­tle Dock­ers fame, and Alan Sambo.

The Seahawks have had 21 indige­nous play­ers across the se­niors and re­serves in 2017.

Web­s­dale also de­signed game day balls, which will be awarded to the best on ground in each match.

The Naidoc cer­e­mony be­gins at 2.30pm in the lead-up to the league match.
