This Saturday afternoon Bonnyrigg White Eagles host the Macarthur Rams in a massive match for the club itself.

This weekend marks the 33rd annual Serbian Folkloric Festival with football being at the centre of the celebrations at Bonnyrigg Sports Club.

In a day that will offer rides, live music and great food and drink, it really promises to be a fun family day out.

Bonnyrigg White Eagles President Nikola Jugovic told Football NSW that he is expecting a massive turnout on Saturday night.

“We decided to change things up this year.

“We usually try to avoid home games on the festival weekend but thought this year it will be a great opportunity to bring the local community together and showcase not only our first grade but also the Serbian culture to the wider community.”

The hosts are expecting one of its largest crowds in years and Jugovic along with his board and volunteers are preparing already.

“We’re excited to host the event and a lot of planning has gone into it to make sure everyone enjoys the day.”

Jugovic says that the first team’s recent fine form under the guidance of Wayne O’Sullivan should be an added reason for people to come to the game.

“The first team has been on a great run and they’ve been scoring a lot of goals. I call on our fans to come and see the team in full flight.”
