Aussie Celtics follow in a proud tradition
WHEN Celtic Australis FC steps out together on the soccer field, they are supporting each other and disadvantaged WA families.
The new soccer club has committed to donating 10 per cent of its sponsorship income to Foodbank WA, which is based in Welshpool.
Celtics Australis FC chairman Paul Kelly said the club’s focus in its first year had been to build strong values and a culture aligned with the original Celtic FC established in Glasgow in 1888.
“A few of our players are lifelong Celtic fans,” Kelly said.
“The original club was formed with the idea of providing support for people affected by poverty.
“There are many families struggling to make ends meet, so when we formed Celtics Australis, it seemed natural to adopt the same principles of providing relief from poverty.”
