Football legend Johnny Warren will be honoured and remembered over the next 24 hours in the village he called home for a decade.
Jamberoo on the south coast of NSW plays host to almost 800 players contesting the 21st Johnny Warren Memorial Cup.
There’s also a family connection with Tournament Director Jamie Warren a nephew of the Australian football icon.
“It is very humbling to see the continued growth of the Johnny Warren Memorial Cup. It is testament to John, his contribution to the game and the high esteem in which he is still held by the football community,” said Warren.
There are three men’s divisions – over-35s, over-45s and over-50s – as well as a women’s open and over-30s division.
All games are seven-a-side with games kicking off tonight and continuing on Saturday afternoon.
“If you’re looking to see some great football, to catch up with old friends, to make some new ones or to reminisce about one of the true greats of Australian football, I encourage you to make the pilgrimage to Jamberoo, it will be well worth it,” Warren added.
The full draw for the 21st Johnny Warren Memorial Cup can be found at www.jwff.com.au.
