Fairs, football and plenty of fanfare made for a massive Fathers- Day weekend for Brisbane Roar as Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League players represented the club at three big local events yesterday.
Andrew Packer, who became a father himself in the off-season, joined Ellen Beaumont and new Roar W-League signing Jo Burgess at the Teviot Downs Fathers- Day Fair.
The trio met fans, signed autographs and took photos at the event which also saw the inflatable Roar Rapid Fire field get a good workout from the youngsters in attendance.
Meanwhile, over at Southbank, Stephanie Latham, Lauren Colthorpe and Massimo Murdocca helped in celebrations of a different kind at the Brisbane 150 festival.
The event marked the 150th anniversary of Brisbane-s separation from Sydney and the three Brisbane footballers were a massive hit, signing autographs, handing out Roar giveaways and speaking to Channel Nine-s The Shak.
Club mascot Roary was also at the event, up to his usual tricks with the mascots from the other football codes.
The loveable lion then headed to Brisbane Olympic to watch the final matches of the Queensland Police Service multicultural 7-a-side tournament.
Clare Polkinghorne, Jenna Tristram and Adam Sarota were also at the event to present the awards and trophies for the event which involved 48 countries playing 105 matches over three days.
The “Black Diamonds” from Sierra Leone took out the Premier competition, with Afghanistan, Vietnam and Colombia taking out divisions one, two and three respectively.
Roary does the rounds
Roary was also out and about on Saturday with attendances at the Rivermount College Fair, Oakleigh SS Fair, the Annerley Soccer Club presentation day and the Logan Uniting Soccer Club presentation night.
McMaster goes back to school
Griffin McMaster was the star of the show at Brisbane State High School-s football awards dinner on Thursday night.
The Brisbane Roar goalkeeper gave a talk on football, handed out trophies and hung around until the end of the night to sign autographs.
