2018 Season kicks off with a blockbuster ‘Back To Manly Day’
Manly United Football Club is starting its Men’s NPL title defense against APIA Leichhardt at Cromer Park on Saturday 10 March (7pm kick off) and will celebrate the start of the season with the annual “Back to Manly Day”.
Back To Manly Day is a celebration of past players and officials who have represented Manly United, Manly Warringah either at Junior or State League level and helped pave the way for the current juniors and seniors who represent the Northern Beaches from U9s through to the senior teams – men and women.
All former players and officials are welcome to attend a special function before the match and then watch the first grade side start its title defense against last year’s Minor Premiers and defeated Grand Finalists APIA Leichhardt.
Manly United will also have some special guests from the 1968 Manly Warringah Mens First Grade side, which is celebrating 50 years since a Manly Warringah Team played in the NSW First Division.
For the first time in history all Manly United men’s/boys teams will play at Cromer Park on the same day with the Boys SAP, Boys Youth League and Boys Association Youth League playing matches from 9am on Cromer Park 1, 2 and 3.
Every 2018 Manly United / MWFA representative player from the U9s through to first grade (men and women) will take part in a Manly United Club Photo on the pitch immediately before the First Grade game.
Any former player or official wanting to join in on the Back to Manly Day celebrations should contact the Manly United office on 9982 6228 or email email@example.com
To illustrate Manly United’s commitment to ensuring female football is integral to our future and growth, Manly United Football Club will use the day to celebrate 2018 Female Football Week by allowing all females FREE entry into the match.
