Community Cup

Wintah and Paul are competing in Sydney's first ever Community Cup Aussie Rules match on this Sunday the 18th of March. The match is renowned in Melbourne as the pinnacle of community footy in the nations footy capital and this year it's coming to Henson Park in Marrickville Sydney.

The community football (Aussie Rules – yes I have no idea how to play this) match is intended to be a one off fundraiser for charity organisation Reclink, who are responsible for using the medium of sport and arts to reach and enhance the lives disadvantaged communities all over the country. The idea is that an elite (unskilled, unfit and alcoholic) squad of musicians match up to the glitz and glam of Sydney's premier media junket junkies in what is deemed the most fervent, physical test of sporting endurance and comical wits in recent times.

The musicians, the Western Walers, will take on this so called conglomerate of media punks, the Sydney Sailors, in this epic battle. On the day there will be bands, beers, shenanigans and great contest between the power houses of what makes footy the national indigenous oval ball game that it is.

So join...
The Western Walers; Dan Sultan (Captain), Damien Lovelock (Co-Captain - Celibate Rifles), Mark Evans (AC/DC), Joel Beeson (Philadelphia Grand Jury), Cameron Potts (Dead Letter Chorus), Sam Worrad (The Holy Soul), Cec Condon (The Mess Hall, Adam Yee (Smudge), Wintah and Paul (no name joke band the Little Lovers) and numerous other unfit weedy musicians take on...

The Sydney Sailors; Adam Spencer (Captain), Scoot Dooley (Channel 10 - University of Sydney player), Fitzy (Big Brother / Nova - Ex Swans player - 4th draft pick 1998), Neil Cordy (ex-Sydney Swans - 235 profession AFL games), Rhys Muldoon (former Richmond player) and many other 'media' guns.

Bands on the day during the game:
The Celibate Rifles
Front End Loader
The Meanies
We also recorded a team theme song to the tune of the Newtown Jets – check it out here

Gates open & live music kicks off at 12 noon
2pm – Reclink Community Cup 'Bounce'

All for a great Charity - Reclink
