The Kyneton Football Netball Club has produced a limited edition all-Australian woollen football jumper to mark the club’s milestone 150th anniversary.
Made with the traditional long sleeves and collar, the black and yellow merino jumpers will be numbered 1-44, with a small selection to be framed featuring the club’s premiership sides since 1966.
“For those lucky enough to purchase the jumpers, they will own a very special memento that will be treasured for years,” club president Karen O’Sullivan said.
The Kyneton Football Netball Club is grateful to Noel Henderson from Avington Farm at Sidonia, who produces elite superfine merino wool of the highest standard, and has has made it possible for the jumpers to be produced, along with Australian Wool Innovation.
AWI recognises wool growers and football clubs are integral to the wellbeing of rural communities.
The not-for-profit global organisation developed the ‘Fibre of Football’ project as a way of supporting both the wool industry and grassroots football clubs like KFNC.
The limited edition jumpers (1-44) are available at an online auction for the next two weeks, or at the May 26 150th Anniverary Dinner at the Kyneton Town Hall. For ticket enquiries call 0438 542 238, for jumper enquiries call 0425 782 034.
