From a very crowded Middle Park comes today's nominator. Socceroo #365, Ernie Tapai has nominated Melbourne Hungaria as his GrassRoots club. Hungaria are the 4th club to use Middle Park in the inner southern suburbs of Melbourne as its home ground. Juggling pitches in the 50's, 60's and 70's must have been interesting for the administrators. Ernie, welcome aboard sir.

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.
