Supporting the Pat Cronin Foundation

We are proud to again support the Pat Cronin Foundation and their mission to raise awareness about the coward punch and prevent such tragedies occurring in our community.⁠

The loss of Pat was devastating for his family, friends and the wider community. However, the way his family have responded to this tragedy by creating a foundation that has a positive impact on our community is inspiring.⁠

Football Director, Greg Hanlon, shared why it’s important for St Mary’s to support the Pat Cronin Foundation.⁠

“At St Mary’s, we recognise that that we have a responsibility to promote positive values on and off the field.”⁠

“Violence has no place in sport and goes against our club’s core values of respect and sportsmanship.”⁠

“As a club, we are committed to playing our part in ending the coward punch and ask everyone in our community to join us in this effort. Together, we can make a real difference and build a stronger and more resilient community and club.”⁠

This weekend, our players will be wearing yellow armbands to honour Pat’s memory and show our support for the Pat Cronin Foundation. ⁠

We also encourage our supporters to wear a yellow armband and actively take part in spreading the Foundation’s message.⁠

Be wise. Think carefully. Act kindly.⁠
