Reclink Community Cup returns to Perth for second instalment

Reclink Community Cup returns to Perth for second instalment

Forget the Derby, this is WA's biggest footy match of the year.

Can the Newshounds avenge last year's brutal loss at the hands of the Bandgropers? Time will tell, as the two teams return to do battle in the second annual Perth Reclink Community Cup on Sunday, August 28 at Steel Blue Oval in Bassendean. The day, curated by RTRFM, Monster Management and Morse Code, features an unmissable game of football between two star-studded teams, pre-game appearances from Dennis Cometti and local hero Peter Bibby, halt-time tunes from The Beautiful Losers and post-match DJ action in the Bassendean club rooms. If you're worried that the quality of footy on show may not be up to scratch, fear no longer, as the Newshounds' coaches are none other than Dockers legends Peter Bell and Shaun McManus, while the Bandgropers have been drilled into shape by former AFL/VFL player and expert coach Ron Alexander. The Newshounds will be captained by RTR stars Chris Dart Kelly and Sarah Norton, and leading the Bandgropers onto the field will be match-winners Tom Fisher (Tom Fisher and the Layabouts) and Maisie Glenn (Ensemble Formidable).

The Perth Reclink Community Cup will be run entirely by volunteers, with all proceeds from the day going to Reclink Australia - an organisation using sport and the arts to improve the lives of people suffering from mental illness, disability, homelessness, substance abuse, addiction, and social and economic hardship. Tickets can be purchased through Oztix.
