Last Saturday evening, I attended Oatley Football Club's gala dinner at the Coral Bay Bowls Club.
More than 100 Oatley Football Club [FC] members and guests dressed up for the night to enjoy good food, good company, great prizes and purchases, and a wonderful DJ who kept the dancers going. The event was hosted by renowned canteen extraordinaire and barbecue boss John Stanton. It was a great success with many highlights, including speeches from Federal and State members of Parliament who are great supporters. In fact, many years ago, I was a player with Oatley FC. Guests also included many others who continue to generously assist Oatley FC. Club President Peter Jones spoke on the football club and the advancement of the club‑wide facilities, encouraging Oatley FC to look forward with a focus on the development of coaches and players within the club. I thank everyone who has been involved with Oatley FC over the years. The club was established in 1975 and is a wonderful football and soccer club in our local community.
