Back to the Game events – Popular as ever
The Northern Sydney Men of League Committee’s experiences with the “Back to the Game” campaign have always been highly successful events, no matter where they are held. Again this was the case at both the Brookvale and North Sydney Ovals recently.
Firstly, through the cooperation of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Rugby League Club, the Northern Sydney Men of League Committee hosted a group comprising of ex-Manly Warringah rugby league players, sponsors and Men of League supporters at the match between the Sea Eagles and the North Queensland Cowboys. As always everyone enjoyed a good night at the footy.
Secondly, with the cooperation and generosity of Greg Florimo, General Manager of the North Sydney Bears Rugby League Club, a group attended the NSW Cup match between the North Sydney Bears and Auckland Warriors on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at North Sydney Oval. Amongst those who attended were ex-North Sydney Bears Noel Kelly, Mark Harris, Tim Pickup, John “Chow” Hayes, Tim Murphy, Jeff Simmons, Warren Thompson, Bruce Walker and Michael Hyde, who all enjoyed the afternoon plus joining in the post-match celebrations by singing the team’s victory song with the players and officials.
The Men of League Northern Sydney Committee sincerely thank both club officials for their continued cooperation in making these annual “Back to the Game” events possible and a success.
