Pride of the Macleay to parade through Kempsey CBD

A VICTORY parade celebrating the two trophy wins and the reserve grade’s grand final appearance is expected to draw a huge crowd on Thursday.

Macleay Valley Mustangs first and reserve grades and their under-18s teams will walk along the pavements from the Kempsey Shire Council offices to the CBD and back from 11am.

They will proceed along Elbow, Belgrave and Smith streets and back.

A hastily arranged pre-match parade through the centre of Kempsey attracted hundreds of players, officials, family members and supporters on Saturday.

Macleay Valley Mustangs president Mike Spalding said the march had energised the players ahead of their grand finals matches.

He called on club members and the public to respect one another’s passage along the route and urged everyone in the community to come out to show their support.

Cr Liz Campbell, who joined the club’s celebrations at the Macleay Hotel, Kempsey, on Sunday evening was thrilled with the Mustangs’ successes.

“Anything like that is good for the community and shows what you can achieve together,” she said.

“It’s a great club.”
