Mitch Cronin Memorial Cup To Play For

The BMD Wynnum Manly Seagulls are back at home this weekend to play for the Mitch Cronin Memorial Cup.

Souths Logan Magpies will make the trip to BMD Kougari Oval for the second time this season after winning 24-18 on the Bayside in Round 5.

In the most important game on the Seagulls calendar, the Mitch Cronin Memorial Cup is up for grabs between the Seagulls and the Magpies, the two teams that Mitch represented in the Queensland Cup.

After the recent tragic news of Paul Green’s passing, this game has added emotion due to the impact that Greeny had on the Seagulls as a junior player, premiership coach and mentor.

The Seagulls will pay tribute to both ‘Cro’ and ‘Greeny’ pre-game, to celebrate their significant contribution to the club.

From a football perspective, the Seagulls are in must-win territory after a couple of losses. The boys have trained well this week and are pumped for such an important game at home.

With this being the last regular season home game, we’re expecting a massive crowd to come through the gates of BMD Kougari Oval.

Make sure you get in early to get a good seat and watch our top-of-the-table Hastings Deering Colts at 12pm.

Our platinum partners at Chemist Warehouse Wynnum and Tingalpa will be handing out hundreds of prize packs on the day, and also give someone an opportunity to win $5000 at half time!

The Brisbane Broncos cheerleaders will be pumping up the crowd, and we’ll raffle off a team-signed Broncos jersey to one lucky Gulls fan.

Tickets can be purchased here to save yourself time at the gate on Sunday.
