February 9, 2018, saw the ever-growing Boomerangs tribe gather at the Yowani Country Club to celebrate the season just passed and to recognise the raft of tremendous performances across the FNSW PL2 competition in all age groups.
Some 265 players, parents, families, sponsors and supporters joined in the celebrations on the night. It was a night of fun, of laughter and of course, a celebration of the excellent season just completed. And, of course, there were some awards to hand out.
A number of raffles held, with some significant prizes involved – all generously donated by Boomerangs sponsors. There were shirt auctions that raised some valuable funds for the club and there were special guests including former Boomerangs players and Australian Futsalroo representatives, Angelo Konstantinou and Daniel Fulton. The Chair and CEO of Capital Football were also in attendance.
Each team – from the development squads to the open age women and men – were awarded two trophies, a Coaches Award and a Player’s Player award, voted for by their
