The Wanderers Heritage XI were no match for the The King’s School XI as the hosts ran out 6-2 winners in the annual rematch of the first ever football match in NSW back in 1880.
Despite being awarded a blatantly offside goal and boasting former Wanderers Adam D’Apuzzo and Catherine Cannuli, the Red & Black could not withstand the strength of the opposition.

Former Socceroo Jim Fraser made headlines once again with some incredible diving saves defying his 67 years of age and frustrating The Kings’ School forwards.
The day was also a chance to host a football clinic for 150 young footballers as well as giving fans the chance to meet some of the players.
Former participants school, holiday and weekly clinics were given the opportunity to learn under the guidance of coaches and Wanderers players.
It was a special moment for many of the young Wanderers fans who not only got to meet their heroes but also learn some new skills off them during the day’s activities.
