It is with great sadness
that we are informing you that Erin Bates passed away peacefully this
morning. Erin played for our under 12 girlís team and has been a
wonderful loyal and devoted member of the club for many years.
As a mark of respect
the club will be closed for all training at the Northern Area this week.
Tomorrow evening the
club changing rooms will be open between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
We invite the
Washington AFC family to pay their respects by bringing flowers to place around
the building and to light a candle in remembrance for the beautiful and
incredibly brave Erin.
It is, as we all
appreciate, an incredibly difficult time for Erinís family and
friends, so this invitation goes to everyone to express support and openly
show our love and heart felt sympathies for Simon, Kirsty, Lauryn, Olivia,
family and friends.
