AFL Masters’ 10th annual Ken Brown Cup
In honour of all parents, guardians and caregivers who give up their time so we could play, the biggest day of the Australian Football Leagues’ over 45 Masters Calendar is on again August 29 at the Broadbeach Cats AFL club for its 10th year and you are all invite!
2 x Queensland Masters National Champion and All Australian player Paul Brown started the Ken Brown Cup after his father passed away in 2011, not just in honour of him but for all parents and guardians that make so many sacrifices so their kids can attend and enjoy sport, develop themselves or just play.
Brown’s father had a successful career as a musician and entertainer but he gave it all away to help raise seven children the best he could. He, like so many parents, spent most of his free time driving to training and games and would often sit in his car on a rainy Melbourne day watching one or more of his five sons playing Aussie Rules footy while listening to the radio as his beloved Collingwood Magpies played somewhere else.
A lot of mums, dads, grandparents or others make similar sacrifices every day so their kids can play sport, or attend piano lessons or some other extra-curricular endeavour. So for them and all those who support and contribute to the active development of the next generation of adults, Broadbeach Cats and Jimboomba AFL clubs will play football seriously for fun this Saturday, August 29th from 3:30pm at the Broadbeach Cats AFL home ground on Dunlop Court. T host club invites the public to come along and celebrate the important role sport plays in our lives, while keeping socially distant of course.
