A massive thanks to Mark and his family for taking time out of their busy schedule to come and visit us!
Also a big thanks to all the kids and parents that turned up at short notice to give Mark such a fantastic reception!
I’m sure we speak for everyone when we say that we all feel so blessed and proud to have such a humble young man who came through our juniors as a local kid, progressed into our seniors and beyond, who has forged such a glorious career for himself, come back and pay us a visit and put some smiles on the faces of a new generation of youngsters, striving to follow in his footsteps.
Rest assured that Mark stayed until the last kid (and grown-up!) had every piece of memorabilia signed and answered every question asked of him. One of the greatest comments of the day came from an U8 who said “Hi Mark, I’ve seen you play for the Socceroos, you must be pretty good!” To which Mark replied “Thanks mate, I’m ok, I try my best…”
More photos to come!
