Mustafa Taleb - our thoughts are with you

Our thoughts and prayers are with one of our members, Under 19’s player Mustafa Taleb.

Just before the TAC strive for Zero round, Mustafa was involved in a serious car accident and was in intensive care.

A lovable kid with a positive outlook on life, his presence has been missed amongst his teammates.

Mustafa suffered two badly broken legs and is still in hospital recovering.

We send him our regards and also to his family and friends who also have suffered immensely going through such a traumatic ordeal.

It was a mixed bag of results for the club over the weekend, however one team that got the win was our mixed Under 11’s.

One of the stars of that win, roaming effectively off the half back line, was little champ, Jessie Kazazes.

Jessie always does the job asked of her by coach Johnny G, with Sunday being no exception.

Instead of going home and kicking her feet up enjoying the win, Jessie put her hand up to help out her beloved footy club.
