FOOTBALL is traditionally a winter sport, but that knowledge does not make it any easier for young players to prepare for a game when it is cold and raining outside.

However, local businesses Ecocentric |Energy and Wilco Electrical have come to the aid of the Fremantle City Dockers’ youth girls team with a donation of club jumpers to help them keep warm during the colder months.

Wilco Electrical director Frank Mitchell said they were happy to help one of Fremantle’s grassroots sporting clubs.

“Supporting local clubs is a great way to facilitate change,” he said.

“We were pleased to work with Ecocentric to encourage people to make a difference through the great sport of Aussie Rules football.”
