EIGHTY junior footballers were given a rare opportunity to train like professionals when Docker Tom Sheridan hosted a free training clinic for Bullcreek Leeming Junior Football Club on Wednesday.
The clinic was courtesy of Fremantle Dockers Gold sponsor McDonald’s and the club also received one of 17 Macca’s Junior Sports Grants worth $1500 to purchase player uniforms.
Bullcreek Leeming JFC sponsorship co-ordinator Rod Peake said the club relied on community support.
“Over the past 30 years our club has managed more than 350 teams and over 3500 players,” he said.
“It’s not always easy to manage a club of our size, so we do rely on the help of the community to back our players.
“The Macca’s Junior Sports Grants is an amazing initiative because it proudly supports grassroots AFL by providing basic sporting infrastructure that contributes to the growth of the sport and more importantly the next younger generation of players.”
Applications for the next round of Macca’s Junior Sports Grants open on October 1.
