The Lane Cove Cats take on the Modewarre Warriors in a battle for the “Donk” Trophy this Queens Birthday weekend.
The game was initially played as a friendly against the two teams in 2014. Lead by our most recent past-president, Nick Brumley, we took a group of players down to Victoria to experience footy in the games heartland.
The game was played in atrocious conditions. Despite the temperature barely getting into double figures and a torrential downpour for most of the second half of the game, the boys ran away with a well earned victory.
The experience achieved during this trip was immeasurable. The team, largely consisting of Under 10 players at the time, went on to become a formidable team in the local Greater Sydney Junior league. However, the bonding between the boys is something that will last much longer.
This year we will be playing for the Donk trophy, in honour of Denis Fitzgerald Snr, whose sadly passed away last year and who’s sons (Denis and Mike) lead the respective clubs.
I’m sure you will join us in wishing the players the best of luck and hope they bring home that trophy.
