BAYSWATER’S football community will don mismatched ensembles next weekend to raise funds for the Starlight Foundation.

Bayswater Football Club will host an op shop ball, with a more than 100 attendees expected to buy Salvation Army’s finest threads.

Member Taiya Cooke said the wider community was invited to join in to raise funds for the children’s charity, with a prize handed out for worst dressed.

President Mark Thomas said the club were looking forward to an upcoming $270,000 installation of floodlighting which will see the grounds meet AFL training standards.

He said the club were always looking for new players and encouraged people to come to training on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thomas said six-time WAFL premiership winner Darren Rumble was leading an after-school colts academy at the club for all players from throughout the district.

The Bayswater Football Club Op Shop Ball will be held at the clubrooms on Hillcrest Reserve, Saturday, April 16 from 6pm, with happy hour 7-8pm.

The event costs a gold coin entry and games held through the night will also cost a gold coin.
