East Fremantle and Peel Thunder will clash in Bunbury on Saturday, May 26, Sport and Recreation Minister Norman Moore announced today.
Mr Moore said the Western Australian Football League match would be for premiership points and was supported by the State Government’s Country Sport Enrichment Scheme.
He said he was delighted that the WAFL had agreed to play the match in Bunbury.
“Coaching clinics will also be held to maximise the impact of the game,” he said.
“Coaches, umpires and players will have the chance to share their skills and tips for budding footballers.”
Mr Moore said that the Country Sport Enrichment Scheme was a Ministerial initiative.
It was all about access to quality sport for regional Western Australians - and the scheme was delivering.
It had now supported a wide range of sports, including soccer, football, netball, basketball, tennis, soaring, karting, swimming and athletics.
“I am delighted that the Country Sport Enrichment Scheme is delivering top-class sport for regional sport lovers on a regular basis,” the Minister said.
