Port Adelaide Power’s Ken Hinkley gives Quinns Districts Junior Football Club tutelage

Monday, August 1, 2016 - 9:40 AM

IF spectators have noticed an unusual amount of Port Adelaide Power chatter about the Quinns Districts Junior Football Club in the past month, this is the reason why.

Club representatives Todd Sherwood and Warren Meulenkamp earned a coaching seminar from Power mentor Ken Hinkley at the club’s headquarters at Alberton Oval in Adelaide in June.

The pair were selected for the journey as part of the Fox Footy Club Rewards program thanks to Quinns being recognised as one of Australia’s leaders in community football.

The Bulls were acknowledged for the fundraiser game they hold at the beginning of each season to raise money for the family of former president Nathan Greco, who died in 2013.

They raised $1600 for the Grecos this year.

Quinns also sells raffle tickets for WAFL club West Perth and hosts a free kids stall at the Wanneroo Show each year.

The Anthony Waring Reserve-based club believes strongly in anti-racism education and drug awareness programs, holding a motivational seminar for players aged 12 and above.

Club president Tanya Couch, who was recently nominated for the WA Football Volunteer of the Year Award, was delighted the Bulls’ efforts had been recognised on the national stage.

“Our club is ecstatic… we loved the whole experience with Port Adelaide,” she said.

“It is testimony to a number of hard working club members who strive to create a community focused and inclusive club.”
