It’s often said that the worst of circumstances brings out the best in the community and that is the case for young sportsman Judd Carpenter.

Carpenter, a footballer and cricketer who plays for West in both sports, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and has since entered into chemotherapy treatment.

To help Carpenter and his family, the West Football Club has set up a fund for people to donate.

“Judd Carpenter is a member of our Leadership Group, a highly skilled player and a respected member of our club,” the club said on its Facebook page.

“Judd has a long road ahead of him, but it is a journey that he will not be taking alone...we will be by his side every step of the way.

“No ask will be too big as we support Judd and his family through the process of getting him well and back to where he belongs, with his West family.

“We know that Judd is eager to be back in his beloved #9 guernsey and running out with his team mates on a Saturday arvo... but until then, every game ‘We Play For Judd’.”

On the cricket side of things, both West and South have pledged $500 each with others set to follow.

Those wishing to donate can do so via bank transfer with the following details:
