Footy wins a cause for cel­e­bra­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

DOU­GLAS Shire’s his­toric premier­ship glory will be cel­e­brated when a “Pre­miers Pa­rade” takes to the streets of Moss­man and Port Dou­glas on Tues­day.

Coun­cil and po­lice have or­gan­ised the pro­ces­sions to span two towns and cel­e­brate the suc­cesses of the Port Dou­glas Crocs and Moss­man­Port Dou­glas Sharks.

The pa­rades could be even more spe­cial if the Dou­glas United Foot­ball Club win their grand fi­nal on Fri­day night.

Dou­glas Shire Mayor Ju­lia Leu said the re­gion’s out­stand­ing sport­ing prow­ess needed to be recog­nised.

“This is a re­ally spe­cial mo­ment for these clubs,” she said.

“It ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic to see sport­ing suc­cess sto­ries, which helps puts Dou­glas Shire on the map and re­minds every­one that we live in the great­est Shire in Far North Queens­land.

“You can still feel a real buzz around town and these premier­ship ti­tles have re­ally given every­one a big lift.”

The pa­rade starts at 12 noon on Tues­day (Oc­to­ber 9) from Mill Street.

In Port Dou­glas the con­voy de­parts at 1:30pm from Mar­ket Park along Macrossan, Owen and Wharf streets.
