NOT only is Abel McGrath property consultant Sam Bevan a major sponsor on the YMCC junior hockey club in Floreat, she also plays the sport.
“I wanted to be active on the field as well as sponsor the club, so I got together with a group of other mums whose kids play for the club and we made up a social Saturday afternoon ladies’ team,” she said.
“Some of us have never played before, some of us haven’t played for 14, 15, 18 years, but we thought we’d give it a crack.
“We are just mums who want to have fun, but we’re also local business owners and operators who work and raise families in the western suburbs; we were strangers at the start of the year and now we’re really good friends.”
It turns out the team was quite good, winning the grand final 1-0 at Fremantle at the weekend. n
