THE DELORAINE Football Club’s latest recruit – Kanga, has become quite the socialite, posing for snaps, sponsoring businesses and handing out Easter eggs around Deloraine.

It is going to be a busy year for Kanga on the field and at the club, as they prepare to acknowledge Deloraine Football Club’s milestone 125 years with a host of events.

Club President, Shaun Donohue, said he wants to ensure the year is a success, not just in terms of winning games but with the local community taking part in the celebrations. And presumably Kanga and friends will be there too.
