While this weekend will celebrate club football with rivalry round matches being played across the state – the Souths Logan Magpies and Ipswich Jets will be putting their on-field hostilities aside during their visit to the community of Cherbourg.
Magpies CEO Jim McClelland said boths cluns had a rich history of engaging Indigenous youth; and both teams were also skippered by Indigenous players in Phil Dennis and Keiron Lander, who are involved in the Deadly Choices organisation. “The focus of this game in on Indigenous youth and it was actually intiated by Jets chairman Steven Johnson,” McClelland said. “It is important for the game to acknowledge the people and communities that contribute to that game.”
Fans who attend on Saturday will enjoy a full day of footy with the junior games kicking off at 9am.
The clubs will be auctioning off their jerseys (after the game) and raising money for the community of this town and also the footy leagues.
