INDIGENOUS ROUND 2017


Goodwood Saints Football Club - Lendlease -  - Indigenous Match / White Ribbon Event

The Goodwood Saints FC wore an Indigenous Jumper during their Div 1 Adelaide Footy League clash with the St Peters Old Collegians FC last Saturday as an opportunity to highlight issues surrounding Domestic Violence in our community.  The GSFC partnered with Lendlease who have a commitment through their Reconciliation Action Plan to collaborate with partners and peers to have a collective impact in closing the gaps in education, employment, housing and health and wellbeing.

A stirring ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony was delivered by Ms Kira Bain from the Tauondi Aboriginal College, and we had guests from the City of Unley, White Ribbon, Adelaide Footy League, Concordia College and our Major Sponsor - Lendlease.

Goodwood Saints have taken this opportunity to show how a football club can bring community issues to the fore, to influence people’s thinking and to make a difference.  Lendlease and Goodwood Saints have partnered to raise awareness of Domestic Violence in our community and in particular the Indigenous Community - thus our link with White Ribbon.  Lendlease have made a commitment to assist in the closing of the gap in education, employment, housing and the health and wellbeing of Indigenous people and in particular the Kaurna people – the traditional owners of the land that we play our football on.  Lendlease have also donated a $1000 towards the APY Women’s Council Domestic Violence Program and have provided a $1200 scholarship to Concordia College for an Indigenous student.

The game was a spirited one with St Peters Old Collegians leading throughout the day. It was only in the dying minutes that Goodwood Saints took the lead and run out eventual winners by 6 points.  A special thanks must go to the St Peters Old Collegians for their support and respect shown throughout this event.

Please find attached some photos from the day thanks to Jason Vowles from the Adelaide Footy League.

I ask all Goodwood Saints members to take this opportunity and donate to White Ribbon.
