Alessandro Diamanti’s letter to school principals in the West


The Principal of the West

Subject: Application for a 3pm leave pass to watch Western United FC take on Sydney FC


With due respect to the classes for the kids of the West, I request on behalf of my team, that you let the kids out early so they can get to AAMI Park and cheer us on against Sydney FC, this Wednesday by 5pm.

I have played football since I was three, football is the love of my life. I hope some of the kids of the West can fall in love too with the game I love.

I have been Captain of Western United since the start of the Club and what I love is seeing the kids at the games, together with us part of our Green & Black family.

So, as we all know, the traffic in Melbourne – it’s crazy! Mamma mia!  So I ask you, if ok, the kids can leave a little bit early so the families can get to the game on time that would be amazing,

Forever West,

Alino Diamanti
Western United FC
