The Wolverhampton Wolverines Australian Rules FC are backing Balls to Cancer. They will be holding a fund raising day in the new year to help us raise much needed funds.
Also they are going to add the Balls to Cancer logo to their kit to help us raise awareness.
Thank you lads!!
They have been going since 2009 when Ian Mitchell started the team up. They have a mixture of older lads and sixth formers from the school he teaches at (Brownhills School). Last year they had 30-odd members. Around a dozen of them are taking part in this years Balls to Cancer fun run. They play in the Central and North West division of AFL Britain. They play their home games at Willenhall RUFC, Essington. Next year they will be sponsored by Rileys Pool Sports Bar, Wolverhampton. They aim to hold a Balls to Cancer home game next year where all proceeds will go to the charity.
Aussie Rules over here is not the 18 a-side version you get in Oz unless you play in London. Here we have a 9 a-side version, played on rugby pitches. Everything else is the same including the severity of the tackling ans everything else!
So why not go along and support the boys who are supporting Balls to Cancer!!
