First for the weekend is our No.1 for the tilt at the '86 WC. Socceroo #323, Terry Greedy, has nominated Eastwood United, now the Lismore Workers FC, as his GrassRoots club. Terry is the 2nd to come from the northern NSW town, and won't be the last. Still involved in Junior football through the NSW Primary Schools Sports Assn its a pleasure to welcome another great gloveman aboard. Welcome 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.
