Maitland Junior FC’s Kyle Brown from Ashtonfield, had only one thing on his mind when he registered to play for Season 2015, and that was pulling on his boots and playing football with his mates.
He had no idea that by registering he automatically went into the draw for the chance to win a framed Socceroos jersey, marking the sides historic win in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup Australia.
Kyle was one of four (4) players from the thousands across Northern NSW to be randomly selected to win one of the prestigious pieces of football memorabilia.
He was presented with his jersey yesterday by Newcastle Permanent Maitland Mall Branch Acting Manager Mel Bray.
Kyle was pretty impressed with his prize but unfortunately, so was his Dad, with the pair now to decide whether it goes into Kyle’s bedroom or somewhere more to his Dad’s liking!
