Each year we commemorate ANZAC Day and remember the service of those Australians and New Zealanders who served in various conflicts over the past 100 plus years.

And football is no stranger to recognizing this service.

In fact, and ironically, football in Sydney itself and several parts of NSW, benefited from the recruitment and transfer of many of these men from football states to areas in and around the state’s capital where they played the game with various clubs.

In 1940 the Sydney Football Record, recognized the service of those who served before them by a poignant article in the ANZAC Day issue which we have attached here.  Click to read.

Because of the era, this article basically refers to the period of a solider in WWI, however it all relates to all service personnel to date.

We hope this read brings your recognition of this very special day.
