AFL 2016 Rd 05 - Fremantle v Carlton

Fremantle take on North Melbourne on Saturday in the 22nd Len Hall Tribute Game.

Saturday’s match against North Melbourne marks the 22nd Len Hall Tribute Game, and the first time Cam McCarthy will play for Freo in the annual match.

The Len Hall Tribute Game is named in honour of Western Australia’s last Gallipoli veteran, Len Hall who was a member of the 10th Light Horse Regiment and one of the last men to leave Gallipoli. 

McCarthy said he was looking forward to play an occasion rich in history and tradition. 

“It’s a massive honour to play in front of a crowd, represent Freo and honour the Anzacs past and those who are now representing our country,” McCarthy said.

“Some people say footy and war are similar in a way but it’s not at all.

“They are doing a totally different job and they are paying the price and work hard for our country while we are just playing a game of footy.

 “So, if we can honour that by playing a footy game for two hours a week that’s pretty special to us.”

The 22-year-old said although he doesn’t have a direct connection with a family or friend serving in the armed forces, the game still held as much importance.

 “I am sure this weekend is pretty special to a lot of boys around the AFL.”

Bounce down for Saturday’s game is 5.40pm and fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 5.30pm to ensure they don’t miss the pre-game ceremony.

This year’s commemorations will take place in two parts, with an observance ceremony held prior to bounce down followed by a special half-time Len Hall Tribute and Veterans Parade.
