MWPC 16U Boys European Tour - Bastille Day Tragedy, Nice

Dear Members

By now you will be aware of the tragic attack on a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, early this morning Perth time. Our MWPC U/16 European tour group lead by Tom Hoad, Jake Leavy and Alex Gunnell are currently in Nice for training.

The team was watching the fireworks when the attack occurred, although luckily they were a few blocks away from the incident site. Jake and Alex got the boys back to the hotel through the chaos and we are pleased to confirm that they are all ok, albeit a bit shaken. The club wishes to acknowledge the efforts of Alex and Jake in gathering and calming the boys under challenging circumstances.

The club is in contact with the team and the parents and will provide whatever assistance is needed to make sure the boys remain safe and the families supported. We have made inquiries with Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and we continue to work with the travelling group and parents to provide any help required as they prepare to depart for Hungary.

Should you have any concerns, please contact myself 0427 986 453 or David Leavy 0424 153 957 for further information.

Robert Neesham
MWPC President
