This week was our TENTH Football United Festival, a huge achievement!
We were able to celebrate with 240 students from our long-term partner schools Evans High School and IEC, Fairfield High School and IEC, Miller Technology High School and IEC, Lurnea High School and IEC, Arthur Phillip High School and our friends at Western Grammar School.
We were especially honoured to have Western Sydney Wanderers youngster John Roberts join us to speak to the players. John’s first taste of football after moving from Guinea to Australia was with our community football program, Football in the Park Blacktown. John has since captained the Joeys and signed for the Wanderers.
After a full day of games in the sun, it was Arthur Phillip who took out the Boys Senior and Girls Competitions. Fairfield won a tense penalty shoot out against Miller in the Boys Junior final. Arthur Phillip took the overall title, and Evans High School won the prestigious Fair Play trophy!
