Friday night I had the pleasure of sitting beside the Sainsbury support crew at the Asian Cup opener, they'd travelled all the way from WA. Trent Sainsbury's GrassRoots club is, Armadale FC from Perth's south eastern suburbs. It was Trent's 1st international in Australia and the crew couldn't have been prouder. we are proud to have Socceroo #574 as part of the GFP.

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.
