Queens Birthday MND Big Freeze round and we welcome Warragul to the City Oval. The Guls have been strong supporters of the event since the outset and we thank them for their involvement today.
Our Big Freeze 8 precinct is where you can purchase your beanie, there’s face painting for the kids and of course the big slide. Our sliders include EG footy Club, Warragul FNC & TRFM identities as well as Mick Jones who has punters donating over $1k for his participation. The boys from new local footy show “A Kick in the Bush” are about too. The players will also pull up their socks and Sockit2MND.
All funds raised today will go to vital & urgent research to find effective treatments and a cure for MND. We’ve set a fundraising target of $20,000 and we thank you for your generosity today.
It’s also a day we welcome our past Premiership heroes with our 2002 senior and A Grade teams in attendance along with our 2012 GL U18 Premiers. We also acknowledge our 1902, 1912 & 1952 senior premiers. Thanks for your contribution to the Redlegs. They’ll all be enjoying themselves and adding plenty of atmosphere from the past players balcony. If you spot them getting around make sure you give ‘em a thumbs up and well done.
Our U15’s junior footyers broke through for their first win last Sunday v Lakes. They sung the song with gusto. They’ve improved each week and Sunday’s win was a credit to their perseverance, determination and belief. Well done.
Round 7 President’s Club $500- draw winner was Les & Heather Knight and Riviera Concrete Paul Hadden took home the Lucke’s Fresh Food Market hamper.
Mark these dates in your Calendar. Always fun to be had with the Redlegs.

Despite the BIG Freeze, the footy and netball will be white hot today and wins are real important across the board as we round the corner into the second half of the season.
Nobody who ever gave their best regretted it.
Challenge Yourself. Be Your Best Today. Good luck to all players and teams.
