Reserves – 5:30pm
Seniors – 7:30pm
We are delighted to announce that ‘Fight for Bailey’ the clash between Wyndham’s oldest clubs – Hoppers Crossing & Werribee City, will meet on the field again after Hoppers Crossing took out the first encounter in 2016 with a 3-2 victory. Going back a little bit further (for those that remember) Hoppers Crossing took out the last league encounter (2003) 2 -1, with goals to Lee Doig & Gus Dos Santos for the Reds, and Kevin Wilmont for the ‘Bees. This year, both clubs will come together for a different cause. It’s not three points the teams are after, its the common goal to raise money for someone very close to both clubs.
Many of you will know young Bailey Chesson. Bailey is the son of Josie Chesson (played at Hoppers from 1998 to 2001, played at Werribee 2004, coached Werribee U9’s in 2013 and playing for Hoppers Senior Women in 2016) and nephew to current Hoppers Crossing SC captain Brian ‘Buddha’ Chesson (HCSC junior 1997 to 2001, WCFC seniors 2011/12, HCSC seniors 2013 till now, club captain 2015).
We encourage all members from both clubs to get down to Grange Reserve on January 21st to support the ‘Fight for Bailey’. A gold coin donation at the door, bring the family down for a day out with food available and the bar well and truly open (not to mention the ‘on-field’ action)
Bailey’s story can be read via his fundraising homepage:
Our aim is to raise as much money as possible to help a family that is close to both clubs’ hearts. Please find it in your heart to help support Bailey and his family in their time of need, they have continued to hold smiles on their faces and live life to its fullest. We would like to make it easier for them to continue on that path.
