Armed with signed posters and Santa hats, local football heroes joined a Blacktown Hospital Christmas party and hung out with patients and staff yesterday.
Western Sydney Wanderers A-League players Radoslaw Majewski and Mathieu Cordier along with W-League players Sam Staab, Amy Harrison and Abby Smith attended the maternity ward’s Christmas party for a chat and some selfies.
They also visited the emergency department and the cancer centre to chat football and the A-League season with patients.
The players toured the hospital’s new facility, with acting general manager Ned Katrib showing the footballers around and explaining the hospital system.
“This visit was great for the staff and the patients, and I really commend the Wanderers for inviting players to interact with our people,” Ned said.
“I wish the A-League and W-League teams all the best for the rest of the season.”
A-League player Mathieu Cordier said it was great to meet people at the new hospital.
“It’s great to be able to make people smile, especially for those in hospital at this time of year,” A-League player Mathieu said.
The Western Sydney Wanderers are currently sitting at seventh place on the A-League ladder and the W-League team is coming third.
