This Sunday’s Round 20 fixture of the 2005 Vodafone Premier League season promises to be a tight tussle as both clubs are very keen to claim the points.
We welcome to SMFC young striker Robbie Cattanach who comes to us after an outstanding season in the NSW Premier League, where he starred for the Blue Devils. His efforts have just been rewarded after being announced, on Friday night at a function in Sydney, the NSW Premier League’s Gold Medal winner.
Due to the overwhelming local community concern regarding crowd behaviour, Victoria Police have unfortunately forced the Club to take a tough stance on today’s attendances. Seating for today’s game will be restricted to the grandstand only. I trust everyone understands that the security precautions have been taken to protect the game and the good name of both clubs.
I thank the Club sponsors in 2005 and again urge everyone to support them by buying their products or using their services.
The last few weeks have been a bit up and down, but with the continued support of the real SMFC fans, we can make a real bid to feature in the prime-time end of season.
I am confident the South Melbourne FC rockets will give the many Blue & White fans something to cheer.
