One of the great things about this country is that, on the hill at Henson Park and at other local community based sporting activities on weekends, we are all equal. We’re all equal in celebrating that sense of community that comes from sport and that sense of identity and bringing together of the community that comes from a local football club like Newtown. I pay tribute to the chair, Barry Cotter; all of the board and players of Newton for keeping that spirit alive. They’re largely volunteers, and those volunteers keep that community based club going week after week.
