Lee Hay, the Minis Coordinator for Galdesville Ravens FC, praised the visit from the Sky Blues and said Sydney FC will definitely be welcome at Westminster Park any time.

“It was a great night,” said Hay.

“Both Rhyan and Daniel were very professional and friendly they were great with the kids and the feedback was just fantastic.

“The best thing on the night I think was the interaction with the kids. They were very open and friendly and approachable and that just added to the whole experience with the kids,” he continued.

“They-d absolutely be welcome again at Westminster Park and I hope Sydney FC will do these visits next year, we definitely want to be involved again.”

Thursday saw a halt to visits with the wet weather hampering trips to Bexley North FC and Loftus Rovers, however tonight Manly United and the artificial surface at Cromer Park will see Sebastian Ryall and Rhyan Grant take the juniors for two hours of training.
