Completing the trifecta of ex-Kahiba team mates is today's nominator. Matilda #34, Deb Bonshore (nee Carlin), has, along with Shelley Youman & Lisa Dunne, nominated both the old Charlestown Hotspurs & Kahibah from the beachside suburbs of Newcastle as her GrassRoots Clubs. As you can see Deb is still kicking around & inspiring the next gen in neice Abbie. Fantastic to add another keeper to the team ! Welcome aboard Deb.

Greg Werner began playing in 1965, with the GrassRoots club of Socceroo skipper Murray Barnes, a change of suburb at age 6 and a new club, one that would become the GrassRoots club of Rob Wheatley & after a 27 year hiatus came back to playing with the GrassRoots club of Socceroos Steve Perry, Richie Bell, Chris Iconomidis & Matilda, Justine Fisher, one could say that the links with the NT are ingrained.
At age 55, when his body gave up on playing, he took up the whistle to stay actively involved. In November of 2014 he created the GFP on Facebook to fill the void left by those in control of the game & in January 2016 launched this website.
