THE Eaglehawk-Football Netball Club is turning pink for its home clash with Gisborne at Canterbury Park on Saturday.

The Hawks will support the Breast Cancer Network Australia with their Pink Sports Day.

Eaglehawk players will wear pink armbands and pink socks for the day, with the club urging locals to get behind the initiative and support the cause.

“Pink Sports Day is a great opportunity for the whole community to head down to our club and support not just the teams competing on the day, but also support locals affected by breast cancer,” Eaglehawk’s Pam Nicolson said on Thursday.

“We hope everyone will wear some pink, get involved and show their true colour - pink.”

The Hawks’ fundraising activities will include collection tins, pink merchandise raffle and an afternoon tea in conjunction with the Past Players Association at half-time of the seniors.

On the field, it shapes as an entertaining senior tussle, with the visiting Bulldogs undefeated and second on the ladder, while the Hawks (3-2) are fourth.
