FOOTY fever hit Barry Brit­ton Re­serve in Balga as Ed­mund Rice Cen­tre WA’s finest ju­niors from mul­ti­cul­tural back­grounds played in the cen­tre’s an­nual Har­mony Cup.

ED­MUND Rice Cen­tre WA’s lat­est crop of ju­nior footy play­ers show­cased their goal kick­ing prow­ess at the Har­mony Cup.

Fe­male and male play­ers from the Mirra­booka-based cen­tre’s ju­nior and youth academies took part in two matches at Barry Brit­ton Re­serve in Balga on Septem­ber 26.

The fam­ily event high­lighted the growth of tal­ent and aware­ness of AFL among mul­ti­cul­tural youth.

In 2010, the cen­tre launched Aus­tralia’s first mul­ti­cul­tural Aus­tralian rules team, the Ed­mund Rice Lions fol­lowed by the cre­ation of Young Lions, But­ler Fal­cons and Young Fal­cons from 2013 to 2014.
