Goodwood Saints lost the GF to Eastern Park by 25 pts which was a great effort considering that Eastern Park has only lost one game during the past five years. Sean's contribution was modest to say the least, (he got one possession and was caught holding the ball) but he thoroughly enjoyed the day. He enjoyed having his family and friends there to share the day with him. In particular, he was excited because Gibson Turner came to watch and Fielks phoned him in the morning to wish him all the best. The team is well coached and the coaching staff focus on the bigger picture. In response to an email I sent the coach, he wrote the following:
An absolute pleasure Bruce, the footy result is only an incidental thing, hopefully it’s the life impact that is measurable
Sean will remember this day for a long time. We'd like to thank all his friends at Westies who took an interest. Thank you. Thank you also to Gibson and Kenny who signed Sean's Indigenous guernsey and to Sophie who photographed the event.

I think the link below still works, so if you'd like to take a quick look you should be able to. One of the highlights was when the teams lined up for the playing of the national anthem. The oldest player on the ground was 62 and the youngest 15, not a bad spread.

Bruce,

It was great that Gibson Turner kept his promise to Sean. Gibson and his partner Jess are two wonderful young people.
