Round up of AFL London 2014

Posted: Aug 08 2014

Last Saturday, we were treated to a spectacular AFL London Grand Final, bringing the 2014 Aussie Footy season to a close in our Capital. Congratulations to worthy winners, the West London Wildcats, who were victorious over the Wandsworth Demons. SANZA were very proud to be the Official League Sponsors and to attend the event to support participating teams. We would like to thank all our teachers and support staff that came along on the day bathed in sunshine, contradictory to the weather forecasts!

Our Candidate Attraction Manager, Jade, was invited to present medals to the winning team who extended their thanks to SANZA for sponsoring the league as did Chris Rea, Chairman of AFL London. It was a fabulous event for all concerned but especially for our Australian teachers who watched four games of their much loved sport. The crowds certainly delivered an electric and passionate atmosphere while all teams who played delivered exciting performances all with a drive to win.

Jade also donned a jersey and played a match for the Wimbledon Hawks Ladies team well and truly ‘getting her hands dirty’ and thoroughly enjoyed it. A great day for players and supporters and a testament to all who have helped the London league in its 25 year history.

The AFL in Australia is sponsored by Toyota and the Grand Final takes place on 27th September. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for SANZA celebrations here in the UK.

Here’s to 2015!
