Gala Day tomorrow at Herdsman's Cove Primary

There will be a Gala Day at Herdsman’s Cove Primary School on Thursday, 28 October.

Anonymous 3.26pm, tell me then, when did they give me this information, where did they send it, and who sent it? I repeat that I have not received anything from anyone at NSJSA about this link with Melbourne Heart.

NSJSA havent even advertised it on there website so they must be trying to keep it secret from the other regions

The NSJSA have not advertised it on our website as yet until all the final details are in place. We are not in the habit of releasing the contacts that we have. FFT know about some of our dealings with Melbourne Heart. The kids had exclusive access to the Hearts training at AAMI Stadium.
Played in a tournament at Roeville on a surface that we only hope to have here in Tasmania, these kids were invited back again next year.

As to the Gala day at Herdsman's cove this is an initiative to get kids active, this is a low economic area and a lot of work to be done in the grassroots area.

To Anthony's credit he has worked hard on lifting the profile of football in Southern Tasmanian area and more of these Gala Days are needed.
