TWO dedicated servants to country football will be honoured with WA Country Football League Life Memberships after decades of involvement with grassroots football in Western Australia.
Ben Ralph and Jim Hull were both unanimously endorsed by League delegates at the Annual General Meeting on 16 February 2013 to receive WACFL Life Memberships.
WACFL President Terry House said that both men were highly deserving of the honour for their outstanding commitment to country football over many years.
“This honour will recognise their wonderful contribution to our great game in Western Australia,” Mr House said.
WA State Country players Jeffery Smith (Railways Geraldton) and Troy Ditchburn (Kukerin-Dumbleyung), pictured left, were named in the All-Australian team at the completion of the Australian Country Football Championships in Wagga Wagga.
