Trophies head west

Brisbane Roar mascot Roary ventured further west of the city last Friday to share the excitement of the club-s past season with the Ipswich region - some of the hardest hit areas in January-s floods.

Brisbane Roar-s Hyundai A-League squad completed a memorable premiership and championship double in the 2010/11 campaign while their Westfield W-League counterparts fought off Sydney FC in this year-s decider to claim their own silverware for the season - the side-s second championship win in three attempts.

All three trophies were paraded around at Brassall State School, Grantham State School and Bundamba State School, much to the delight of the enthusiastic children whose schools were heavily damaged by the January floods.

The Brassall and Grantham schools were particularly affected by the devastating natural disaster and were presented by Roary with new Nike footballs and National Youth League kits, complete with shirts, shorts and socks, for the schools- football teams to compete in over the school year.

The visists were well received by students and teachers alike as Brisbane continues to share the euphoria surrounding the success this season.

This week, Roary will be at the Royal Toowoomba Show from Thursday through until Saturday with the mascot and the three trophies also taking part in the Toowoomba junior clubs march past at the show on Saturday morning at 9am.
