FIRST XI HOME GAME IN SIX YEARS
The start of the 2013 season saw the First XI play their first home game at
Marist in six years in the Capital Football Junior League.
For the past six years they have been playing in the Premier League and so
played at either Canberra Olympic’s home ground or Cooma’s ground.
In honour of the occasion they were piped onto the ground by Jen Harmer
from the AFP Pipes and Drums Ceremonial Band and given a guard of
honour by the U14 Div 1 team. The Headmaster tossed the coin and they
were away. To top it off they won their match against Woden Valley 1-0 .
