Murray to attend NC Football night
SOCCER guru Les Murray has accepted an invitation to be guest of honour at the North Coast Football end-of-season awards evening on September 25. Murray is a long-time friend of new NCF president Peter Rowe and says he is looking forward to visiting the Coffs Coast.
“It’s a fantastic part of the world, one of my favourites, so it will be great to be part of North Coast Football’s end-of-season gala evening in a World Cup year,” Murray said.
Murray will shortly be heading off to South Africa to anchor the SBS coverage of the 2010 World Cup.
“It’s going to be a great tournament, the sounds of African drums and the rhythm of a new continent. I am really excited by it all,” added Murray.
The NCF Awards Night is to be held at the C.ex Club in Coffs Harbour on Saturday, September 25, and new president Rowe is hoping for a capacity turnout.
“I have been friends with Les for 20 years, he is a fantastic bloke and the biggest fan of our game in Australia,” Rowe said.
“I’m now calling on all NCF clubs to get in early and book tickets for what promises to be a superb evening.”
Further information on the format of the evening will be announced next month, giving all clubs plenty of time to organise their requirements.
