The producers of
5 April 2014 at the Whitten Oval
(10:30 first bounce)
for Footscray -vs- Richmond
in the VFL return of ‘Footscray’
to serious competition.
Head on down to the Whitten Oval for a pleasant Saturday morning of football and and join @theholyboot and @Footy_Maths for the return of Footscray to the Western (Whitten) Oval. We will also be joined by @AndrewGigacz, editor of the AustralianFootball.com site (and keen Bulldog) as well.
Entry is free for Bulldogs members, and for non members it is (as described by the @Footscray_VFL account) a nominal fee.
@Footy_Maths There will be a nominal fee on the gate for non-WB members. Food and beverage outlets will be available.

Well, @TheHolyBoot @AndrewGigacz and @Footy_Maths are football fans who have a deep feeling for the old suburban grounds of days past.
And with the Whitten Oval (joined in 2014 by Punt Road Oval) making a return to regular football service, we thought it would be good to turn up, watch footy and talk about it with people we had met on twitter (or read the blogs/sites), but are yet to see face to face
There is nothing else to the day, other than a game of footy and a face to face meet-up / tweet-up, and talk about each others footy experiences.
With the early start, it also makes it easy for all interested fans to get along and not miss any action of the round later in the day.
So, feel free to join us. We will be somewhere around the two players races in front of the Whitten Stand.
Hope to see you there!
Nice idea, Holy Boot. Might be able to get there.
Holy Boot, count me in! What a treat this should be. (and I loved your report on Punt Road Oval and the photo of “the bricK”
