ANZAC FOOTBALL THIS SATURDAY 27 APRIL 2019 AT GOSNELLS OVAL

After last week’s general bye the Gosnells Hawks Football Club take on Carlisle in the league, reserves and colts with the third team v Hamersley Carine on Saturday. All games are at home at Gosnells Oval. Due to fixtures by the PFL this will not happen many times this year so it is a rare opportunity for members and supporters to get to Gosnells Oval to enjoy a day of Australian Rules Football and see all male teams in action.

The women’s team play their first game for the season at Warnbro Sporting Complex with the game starting at 12.15 pm. The Gosnells Football &  Sports Club would like to honour and remember the sacrifices of the original ANZAC’S and to pay respect to our service men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation.

Members of the public are invited to Gosnells Oval to pay respect at a commemorative service to be held at 2pm. The Anzac Ode will be read by Gosnells RSL Secretary Mr Fred Batt. A minute silence will be held before each game.

Those attending are encouraged to wear medals. There will be an afternoon tea in the Percy Garrett Social Room at half time in the league game at 3.30 pm. The games will be dedicated to the Anzac Tradition. Games start at 10.40 am, 12.35pm, 2.30pm and 4.45pm.

A medal for the Fairest & Best Gosnells player in the league game has been named the
BARRATT/HANSEN MEDAL in memory of Terry Barratt, a brother of past President and Life Member Norm Barratt and William Paul Hansen, father of Life Member and former club captain Nathan Hansen.  Both Terry and William served in the Australian Army and in Vietnam. Terry played football for Gosnells and William for Kelmscott in the Sunday Football League.
