Spe­cial trib­ute for WFC’s home game

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.
