50th Anniversary celebrations Loftus Yarrawarrah Rovers FC

To conclude its 50th Anniversary celebrations Loftus Yarrawarrah Rovers FC are playing a social game between players of its senior teams this Sunday 14 September at Loftus Oval at 3:00pm.

It is a game with a difference in that it will be played with the old rules which date back to 1863. As far as possible the teams will be appropriately attired. As this may well be of interest to others we wish to extend an invitation to all members of the Sutherland Shire Football Association.

The day will also be used to collect money for a charity in memory of a three year old boy who lost his life only weeks ago. The boy’s brother is a player with the Rovers club and his Dad is a coach. The parents of the boy chose the charity in the boy’s name: CIDS & Kids NSW & Victoria.

I mention this so you won’t be offended if someone asks for a donation. Or they may ask you to buy a copy of a book that is a complete history of our game, including the 1863 rules. That decision of course is entirely of your choosing.
