Football West News

Rockingham City will take on Dianella White Eagles at Lark Hill Sportsplex on Saturday in an All Flags State League Division One top-of-the-table clash, with both sides undefeated after four matches.

The match will have special significance for the home side as they honour past players and coaches that have contributed to Rockingham City’s success with a ceremony after the match.

The club will recognise 10 Football Hall of Fame Western Australia inductees that have represented Rockingham City during their careers; Hugh Miller, Robbie Dunn, Steve Kamasz, Geoff Cole, Peter Rickers, Mike Smith, David Kamasz and Michael Tetlow.

The late Ernie Hannigan and Ray Ilott will also be recognised.

Tetlow, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year, told Sound-Southern Telegraph the occasion will be a great recognition of the club’s history.

“The football fraternity are very close so there’s going to be a lot of high-fives,” he said.

“There’s a real mixture of what those people have gone on to do, but it’s basically a way to bring people together who have been a part of the club’s rich history.”

In other Division One action on Saturday, third placed South West Phoenix host Forrestfield United at WML Stadium and Ashfield travel to Nash Field to play Western Knights.

Gosnells City will play Fremantle City as both clubs search for their second win of the season while Canning City host Joondalup City at Burrendah Reserve in a battle for 10th and 11th.

UWA-Nedlands has a bye.
