St George Football Association

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley) (20:45:45):

From Riverwood to Rockdale and everywhere in between, the St George Football Association is an outstanding organisation that is continuing to grow our local football community. Earlier this year I had the honour of visiting Peakhurst Park alongside the chief executive officer of the S George Football Association, Craig Kiely, to launch the 2021 football season. I am pleased to announce that the organisation has more than 10,000 registered players—my son is one of them—for the 2021 season, which is an outstanding achievement for a community organisation. I am proud to be a joint patron of the St George Football Association—I understand the member for Kogarah and the member for Rockdale are also patrons—because I strongly believe that it does an incredible job in promoting inclusion and greater engagement within our local sporting community. The 2021 season launch put the supportive nature of the organisation on display and it has been great to see so many people eager and excited for the season ahead. I cannot wait to see plenty of exciting football being played at local fields across our region in the year ahead.
