The first of our players to nominate a club from the KDSA, as it was then. Socceroo #313 is Grant Lee who has named Lane Cove Utd as his GrassRoots club. Many's the battle we had with the Covers at one of nature's great little amphitheatres, in Pottery Green, a stone's through from the heart of Lane Cove on Sydney's lower North Shore. Appropriate given that last night his Sydney Olympic made it through to the last 16 of the FFA Cup last night in the ACT. Well done sir & welcome aboard.

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.
