Mascot Juniors Rugby League Football Club celebrated their 100th Anniversary with a dinner at the AJC Centre at Randwick Racecourse recently.
It was a great night with more than 500 supporters enjoying catching up with old friends and celebrating an amazing milestone for the Club. Mascot Juniors is synonymous with our City. It is part of our history as well as our future because of the wonderful opportunity it offers the people of this community, from our little ones through to our young men.
As the father of two teenage boys, I have really grown to appreciate and value our sporting clubs and the contribution they make to our community. I also have a greater appreciation and understanding of the tremendous work that the volunteers who work tirelessly to keep these organisations running and functioning do on a daily basis.
Mascot Juniors is a wonderful example of what this City stands for and I, together with the local member Premier Kristina Keneally and Deputy Mayor, Councillor George Glinatsis, was very proud and honoured to be a part of celebrations.
They’ve produced many great footballers, such as George Piggins and Ian Roberts, but it’s all the kids who have benefitted that’s so impressive and so very important. Well done, and congratulations on such an amazing milestone … Your City salutes you.
