A night for good sports
WOULD you like to bid for a signed NRL jersey and rub shoulders with several sporting personalities?
You can do just that when Woolgoolga Rugby League Club hosts a sportsman's night at the Woolgoolga RSL tonight in a major fundraising initiative for the Seahorses.
Among the special guests and speakers for the evening are Max Krilich, former Manly and NSW rugby league great, Wayne Harris, rider of 1994 Melbourne Cup winner Jeune and the youngest jockey to ride in a Golden Slipper along Coffs with Harbour-based jockey Zac Purton.
The list of sporting memorabilia which goes to auction is equally impressive.
There will be signed and framed Rugby League jumpers from NRL clubs including the Broncos, Dragons, Bulldogs, Rabbitohs, Roosters and Sea Eagles, as well as a photo from the 1992 Grand Final featuring Alfie Langer and Kevin Walters, which has been signed by both players.
Racing memorabilia will include items used by jockey Glenn Boss in his association with dual Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva and the jockey pants recently worn by Zac Purton in the Doomben 10,000 which have been signed by the other jockeys in the race including Darren Beadman.
Tickets for the dinner and sportsman's evening are still available by contacting Woolgoolga RSL Club of members of the Woolgoolga Rugby League committee.
Activities will get underway at 7pm.
