Federal Member for Bennelong John Alexander OAM MP was on hand to compete with State Member for Ryde The Hon Victor Dominello to score the first goal of the season.
Alas after many years of being the first, this year Mr Alexander conceded the title to Mr Dominello, after a few near miss attempts.
Mr Alexander said: “It was heartening and exciting to see the official beginning of the ERNA 2020 season on Saturday. Their COVID-safe protocols were first rate, allowing our community to come together and compete.
Now it is more important than ever to engage with our community and keep isolation at bay. Finding that balance is the challenge. May this season be a success for the ERNA, and good luck to the teams in their endeavours!”
