THE High Wycombe Amateur Football Club has benefited from some new equipment, with Forrestfield and High Wycombe Community Bank Chairman Phillip Mutter presenting club president Neil Worsley with $600 worth of new gear at a recent training session.

Mr Worsley thanked the Bendigo Bank for its on going support of Football in High Wycombe.

Mr Mutter said the Forrestfield and High Wycombe communities had thrown support behind the locally-owned and operated branch, transferring banking business across.

“Forrestfield and High Wycombe residents, traders, business owners and community groups have all seen the benefits of local banking,” Mr Mutter said.

“We are extremely proud of reaching this milestone because it reflects not only the ongoing success of our business, but most importantly, shows how much of a difference we have been able to make in the community.”

“And the more the people in the community who bank with us, the more profits we can return to the community through sponsorships and grants.

The High Wycombe Amateur Football Club has three senior sides, a colts side and an integrated side playing in the West Australian Amateur Football League in the 2015 season.

Teams train on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm.

“We welcome any new players to our club,” Mr Worsley said.

The club commenced in 1992 with one side and has grown to field 4 sides plus an integrated side in 2014.

“In the club’s short history we have been successful on the field with 11 premiership flags and numerous finals games,” Mr Worsley said.

“Along with our success on field we have twice been awarded the champion club of the WAAFL.”

In 2011 the club registered an integrated side for people with disabilities into the amateur competition.

The club has been fortunate to have many talented individuals on the field with a total of 11 association medals being awarded to our players.

Off the field the club has awarded the honour of life membership to 14 members for their hard work and commitment to the club throughout the years. For more information contact president Mr Worsley on 0400 612 841.
