Hideous weather conditions were predicted for the weekend and on Friday we were faced with the decision of cancelling the event.... it went ahead, and we were rewarded with a glorious day of sunshine and a superb event enjoyed by all... quite possibly the best Fair Play yet!
Blessed by a beautiful day against all the odds, it was clear from the start that both the organisers and the players were determined to make this event a success, no matter what the weather!
Kicking off at midday at the fantastic Victoria Park, the scene was set for a battle royale to see who would take out the Etiko Trophy for the 7th time.

When 18 year old star Zoe Konstantopoulos from Melbourne played her first match at the recent HFCA fundraiser Collingwood Rotary Fair Play 17 it was obvious to all in attendance she was a natural talent at the game.

A day which began with hot sun and ended in torrential rain (luckily just after the final had finished) saw the Collingwood Allstars take out the Fair Play Trophy in a day dominated by the teams from the local estates soccer programs.
