Cocktails with coach

REVERED former Australian Socceroos coach Rale Rasic will be one of the main attractions at the Ultimate Coaching Event in Emerald during the September school holidays.

Rale has a unique position in Australian soccer having been the first coach to take Australia to the finals of the World Cup in West Germany in 1974.

He coached the Socceroos in 58 international matches from 1970 to 1974.

Rale will be one of the high profile guest speakers at a cocktail party on Saturday, September 17, at the Emerald Town Hall’s supper room.

Brisbane Coach of the Year 2010 Joe Fenech will also talk.

An auction of memorabilia will have soccer fans salivating with a framed, limited edition autographed Manchester United photo compilation one of the star items.

The 2011 A League premiers, including departing captain Matt McKay, have signed the Brisbane Roar away strip on offer.

A framed and autographed goal keeping gloves worn by Liverpool’s Pepe Raina will go under the gavel, as will a signed limited edition David Beckham compilation.

Tickets are $75 and are available from Emerald Eagles Football Club on 0429 503 479 or Emerald Dental Group, 112 Egerton St on 4982 3880.
