It's been a busy week in the community this week as our team brought plenty of football fun to our city. See where the Club has been this week.
Jamie Maclaren returns to Sunbury United Soccer Club
Following his move back to Melbourne, City attacker Jamie Maclaren returned to his junior club, Sunbury United. The home town hero signed autographs, posed for photos and offered some useful tips to the local members, before presenting the City club with his Melbourne City shirt and some football equipment, including a bag of Big M soccer balls.
The aspiring footballers enjoyed a fun session, asking their hero various football and career related questions before enjoying an autograph session.
Football in the Park at Maccabi FC Caulfield
Captain Scott Jamieson and shot-stopper Eugene Galekovic attended Maccabi FC's Football in the Park event in Caulfield. The duo took photos with the youngsters, signed autographs and observed the fun activities, including a game of soccer in the inflatable pitch.
City in the Community visits Ivanhoe Primary School
City in the Community visited Ivanhoe Primary School during the week, where 150 students participated in a range of games and activities to encourage teamwork, positive thinking and positive attitudes towards building resilience.
Students at Ivanhoe Primary School also participated in City in the Community's City Robot program. The students used the JimU app created by UBtech to assist them in learning how to build their own JimU robot.
Alongside Ivanhoe Primary, Olympic Village (20 students), Reservoir Views (50 students), Lower Plenty (60 students), Reservoir West (150 students) and Richmond West (50 kids) were all visited by City in the Community, undertaking the program this week.
City in the Community has welcomed the resumption of Walking Football sessions across Melbourne. The program aims to give seniors an opportunity to improve their fitness, health and overall well being through exercise, while also having the opportunity to socialise and make new friends. The program now runs in Mill Park, Campbellfield, Keilor, Reservoir and Caulfield.
