As many of you know season 2019 is GUFC’s 60th year & we have organised lots of really exciting events to celebrate this wonderful milestone. The celebrations have focussed on our rich history and our special place in the Gymea Community as the “Family Club”.
Here’s some of our fabulous #GUFC60 EVENTS we have been proud to organise for the 2019 season:
– rollout to players of a special historical training shirt!
– team entered into the FFA Cup!
– weekly Facebook Flashback Friday & Striker series
– Family Day
– Dean Cup, SHFC v GUFC
– special miniroos presentation of original pennant ‘trophy’
– Sponsorship of Titan’s FC perpetual trophy – Teal Cup
Terry Hibbins (life member & 12 year stint as honorary secretary) is responsible for one of the great institutions at GUFC, the Boomerang Bar! Terry, with David Birch, commenced operations and they were soon joined by (Uncle) Harry Johnson. The Bar has seen many stories of football genius retold, reshaped and enhanced over the years! The bar has also inspired a few tales of its own, including the mysterious ‘Grasswatchers’ who have held a “meeting” every Friday afternoon at Gymea Bay Oval for some 40 odd years. ‘Grasswatchers’ was originally named because Terry’s children used to ask where did Dad go each Friday… and the answer was “To Watch the Grass Grow”. Many famous Gymea men have been, or are still part of, this special group.
