Around the grounds: Melbourne City fan’s special gift, Sydney farewell Brosque, Roar delight for Hingert

Melbourne City captain Scott Jamieson made a loyal fan’s day by gifting him a birthday present to remember.

One of City’s biggest supporters, Cam, could not hide his delight when watching a video of Jamieson delivering the surprise.

Cam was rewarded for loyally following City across the country during the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season.

The Melbourne fan racked up more than 3,000km travelling to cheer on the side from his home in country Victoria. 

Not only will Cam receive a special Melbourne City gift pack, but he will also get the opportunity to meet the team next season – an occasion he will no doubt be more than happy to travel for.

Sydney FC farewell club icon Brosque

Sydney FC supporters waved goodbye to club legend Alex Brosque for the final time during the Sky Blues’ AFC Champions League encounter against Kawasaki Frontale on Tuesday evening.

The J-League outfit ran out 4-0 winners at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium as head coach Steve Corica rang the changes following his team’s Hyundai A-League Grand Final triumph against Perth Glory on Sunday.

Brosque leaves a lasting legacy at Sydney FC having signed off on his career by lifting his third Hyundai A-League title, adding to the same accomplishment in 2010 and 2017.
