Good to have you guys aboard!   Don't be strangers...

Did Fulham's most recent summer travels have anything to do with your interest in the club or did you guys find the club prior?

Lol fair enough questions. We actually met each other in the very early beginings of Gold Coast United, and the obvious first question popped up 'Who do you support?', and guess what, we were both Fulham supporters. Then Fulham came to town to play Gold Coast and from that moment on we realised it was time to go over there and support the boys in the flesh and watch some decent football! Poor attendances for GCU and and an overall dislike for the team in the region has made the wait SO much longer!

So via the World cup in SA, i will be finally watching the boys from the stands in H5! REJOICE!

Oh and we all have Brittish passports through our fathers, making it a lot easier for us all!

Haha, how random is that. I remember we met at the first GM for GCU and he was like, im gonna go home tonight, have a bevvie and watch the mighty whites. I was like, "you follow the whites?" and he was like "If you mean Fulham, then yeah". Haha

It was funny to run into another fan like that and now we are moving over to watch the boys in the flesh at the cottage. Its basically a dream come true.

One of my ancestors was sent  to Austrailia for stealing a sheep. His family moved out there to be with him a year later. So if anybody knows of any Wingroves who can trace their family to 1846 or just after. Hi family of mine.

Lest We Forget

Today is ANZAC day, it is to commemorate the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who gave service, who were maimed or ultimately lost their lives for the British Empire and freedom.

This particular song, even though about the Australian contingent, but with the intention to remind us of the pain and suffering each nation experiences because of war, is sad and poetic but worth a listen to:-

And the band played Waltzing Mathilda


And for the poignant lyrics click on the link:-
