Special tribute for WFC’s home game
SOCCER: The Whitsunday Football Club (WFC) will play their first home games of the season on Saturday at the Whitsunday Sportspark.
WFC manager Anthony Nobilia said they would love to see a big crowd for their first home game and to say farewell to a true club legend.
“We’ve had some good support in previous years and it’s been awesome so we want to continue that, especially with the passing of Cyclone Debbie and the passing of one of our favourite club men, Steve Andrew,” he said.
“We’re going to have a minute’s silence for him at the games. It’s a great tribute to a person who’s put a lot of voluntary work into the club. He was always here at the games either collecting at the door or at the canteen.
“It’ll be a nice little gesture for a guy who’s going to be well remembered.
“It was so sudden. “He’s going to be missed.” As far as the games go, Nobilia said Brothers was always a grudge match between the sides and he expected they would be a formidable opponent.
All three teams will be in action against Mackay’s City Brothers with the Reserves from 3pm, followed by the Ladies’ Premier team at 5pm and the Men’s Premier team at 7pm. There will be a canteen and bar open.
READY: Whitsunday Football Club set for first home game.
