WAFL Football In Jurien Bay
 (April 10, 2002)

The Central Midlands Coastal Football League has much pleasure in providing regional football lovers with a unique opportunity to experience WA football at its best when the WAFL comes to the picturesque coastal town of Jurien Bay on Saturday 20th April 2002.

In addition to the main event, a premiership game between the Perth and Subiaco Football Clubs, football supporters have the opportunity to attend seminars on coaching, umpiring and sports injuries management.  The game will be broadcast in the metropolitan area by Radio 6AR.

CMCFL President Geoff Gill said “with the generous support of the state government in providing funding through the Country Sport Enrichment Program, we are able to bring the expertise and talent of our elite sportsmen to the regional areas of WA, for this we are truly thankful.”

“This has been a truly collaborative arrangement highlighting the co operation between the state government, CMCFL, Department of Sport and Recreation, Shire of Dandaragan, Jurien Bay Football Club as well as the West Australian Country Football League, and the WAFL.”

“The entire weekend also intends to showcase the talent we have in regional WA by involving the Development Squads from CMCFL and the Mortlock League as well as the up and coming “stars of the future” in our nippers and Auskick sides that will play during half time of the big match,” Mr Gill said.

“The entire spectrum of the sporting and recreation scene will be showcased in Jurien Bay including a Sports Recognition Dinner facilitated by the Department of Sport and Recreation to be held on Friday 19th April, at the Jurien Bay Community Centre.  Primarily, its aim is to acknowledge those within our communities that have kept the spirit and integrity of sport in our region alive, the all important spine of communities in the bush.”

“The Belt Up message is also being promoted throughout the weekend for those travelling long distances.  As it is the commencement of our season, we support this important message as our league encompasses a vast region for players of all ages to travel,” Mr Gill said.

Patrons also need to remember this is strictly a no BYO event.  “There will be plenty of food and refreshments available on the day as well as the great entertainment to be provided by the game we all love the most”, Mr Gill said.

“So Belt Up and Be There for one of the best games of football you will see in 2002 and witness the Perth Demons take on the Subiaco Lions on Saturday 20th April at the Jurien Bay town oval. Proceedings for the day begin at 10.00 am with the match starting at 2.15 pm sharp.”
