The local community’s theme of unity and rallying behind a worthy cause continued on Saturday afternoon at Rose Point Park when the Singleton Roosters’ hosted their annual Pink Day.

“Today was all about raising awareness for breast cancer,” club official and junior coach Jake Mellon told the Singleton Argus.

“It hits home for a lot of us and, with the addition of the women’s side in recent years, our club has grown with more numbers to get behind the theme.”

Players across all three senior fixtures donned pink socks to help raise awareness for the cause before a substantial home crowd.

“As a club it was great to raise a bit of money behind it,” Mellon added.

“The club also purchased some pink socks; selling each pair to a player today for only ten dollars.”

SUPREME LEADER: Singleton Roosters' club president and player Nadene McBride leads teammate Sophie Breeze and coach Marcus Rowe onto the field.
