R.I.P Richmond ExSSC
Great Day out at WSW Game, U10's show them how its done!
On Sunday 8th February some Richmond ExSSC Under 8's were given the opportunity to play small sided football at the half time break between Western Sydney Wanderers and Wellington Phoenix played at Penrith Sportingbet Stadium. They were involved in a promotion for AIA Vitality Mini Roos. The boys had an awesome time and were also able to see the Wanderers first win for the season, an added bonus for all! Thanks for the great organisation by Kathy Spice and all the parents who were able to rally at short notice. Great stuff! A memorable day.
Here are some snaps from the day. Click on each image to view it full size.
