canberra united and the key to canberra

Chief Minister Gallagher is letting us all know she’s given the keys to the city to the all conquering Canberra United women’s football team:

The keys were presented in recognition of Canberra United winning the national 2012 W-League premiership. The Chief Minister was joined by the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation, Andrew Barr in presenting one of the city’s highest honours.

“Ellie Brush and Canberra United are tremendous role models for all ACT footballers and particularly sporting women. They provide a shining example to all young girls playing sport and something to aspire to,” the Chief Minister said.

“To win a national title in any sport is an outstanding achievement and Canberra United are deserved champions having gone through the entire season undefeated – a truly remarkable effort.

Congratulations to all.
