Headspace Cup pits CSU against Bathurst District Football for a good cause

CSU will pit themselves against the rest of the Bathurst District Football competition this weekend in the second running of the Headspace Cup.

In all 10 games featuring CSU clubs this Sunday they will be looking to add to a cumulative pointscore, while their opponents will be banding together to try and outdo the students.

Last year CSU dominated the day with six wins from eight matches.

It’s all for a great cause as CSU players will be taking donations at the gate, as well as offering donuts and ‘Headspace Cup’ green headbands for sale, with all funds from their sale going to the national youth mental health organisation.

"It means a lot to us as a club to be able to give back to a community that gives us so much,” CSU Football Club president Meaghan Kempson said.

“Mental illness is becoming an increasingly high issue and we would love to see the community band together to tackle the negative stigma."

Last year was an outstanding fundraising success from CSU with over $2,000 raised for Headspace.

Collegians and Abercrombie Football Clubs will shoulder the bulk of the responsibility in the BDF’s attempt to take the cup. The clubs will have three and two matches against the students’ teams respectively.

The day gets underway at 9am with the ladies third grade (CSU White vs Collegians) and men’s fourth grade (CSU Red vs Eglinton DFC) games at Proctor Park.
