Crossbar King Emerson

Although 99% of the crowd at Optus Stadium on the night of the Hyundai A-League Grand final left extremely disappointed after Perth Glory’s penalty shootout loss against Sydney, there was a shining light for one of Forrestfield’s most promising youngsters Emerson Di Mattina.

Emerson won a competition to enter the cross bar challenge at half time and in true forrie fashion nailed the bar on his first attempt!

Emerson won a signed Matilda’s Jersery, a Perth Glory Shirt, $500 towards his club registration and $1,500 worth of kit for the club. On behalf of everyone at the club we’d like to congratulate Emerson who managed to hit the crossbar – unlike a memeber of the first team squad who played the same competition in the semi final and did not win!!
