Wallsend RSL Athletic Club Inc
Naming of Clubhouse
Wallsend lost one of it's most outstanding citizens last December when Ian Pettigrew passed away.
On Saturday 2nd April 2016 at 12 noon a ceremony will be held ...in Federal Park Wallsend honouring him by naming the refurbished amenities building "The Ian Pettigrew Clubhouse". The "Ian Pettigrew Shield", a football gala" will also be competed for. Sausages will sizzle and Lord Mayor Nelmes will be attending
I'm sure Ian would be most humbled by this very fitting tribute. All athletes past and present are invited to attend in club colours.
