Today's offering is from Matilda #90. Katrina Boyd has nominated the now defunct Campbelltown Police Youth Club as her GrassRoots club. Katrina spent a year at the same club as 2 Socceroos in the Sutherland before moving to the McArthur Association in Sydney's south-west and was first capped in 1996 and then another 27 times, scoring 9 goals in the process. Welcome aboard Kat. Love these old pics, just gold !!!
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.
