National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s league leaders Wollongong Wolves threw its support behind NAIDOC Week as the first team squad wore commemorative jerseys in their 1-0 round 18 victory over Hakoah Sydney City East on Sunday at WIN Stadium.
The jerseys were designed by Trent Duffy of ‘Artistic One Indigenous Art’ and were a huge hit as the Wolves faithful got behind what was a great day for football in the South Coast.
Wreck Bay Sharks’ Bernie McLeod was thrilled with the Wolves’ Indigenous engagement at WIN Stadium.
“I am extremely proud that coach Luke Wilkshire and the Wollongong Wolves FC embraced the idea to acknowledge the First Nations Peoples of Australia by wearing an indigenous jersey to commemorate this leading into NAIDOC Week.
“The artist for the shirt was Trent Duffy (Artistic One Indigenous Art) who did a fantastic job.”
Bernie McLeod and the Wreck Bay Sharks have been massive advocates for Indigenous Football in NSW.
