The memory of AFL Queensland Hall of Fame member Bruce “Wolf” Steensen will be honoured with with the Aspley Hornets to hold the inaugural Bruce “Wolf” Steensen Charity Shield this Sunday August 24.
Wolf, a long term player and member of the Club, died earlier this year as a result of one-punch.
He started playing Super Rules in 1992 for Norths, who combined in 1995 with Wests to form the Central Parrots.
Wolf clocked up 17 years of service to the AFL Masters, including ten years as MAFQ president that saw him build the league from six to forty teams and earn life membership for his efforts.
The Masters has taken the reins on the Bruce “Wolf” Steensen Charity Shield which will see the “Wolves” taken on the “Parrots”.
Each year the Parrots will represent a charity that will benefit from this fundraise. This year the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation was chosen as Hornets staff member, Morgan Harris, was diagnosed with cervical cancer at the age of 27.
The event kicks off at Graham Rd oval at 10.30am on Sunday.
