Vale Giuseppe (Joe) Natale

Tuesday 14 November, 2023

The Hon. V.A. TARZIA (Hartley) (15:23): I might also talk about a giant of soccer, of the football community,
who we have just lost here in the Campbelltown area. Vale to Giuseppe (Joe) Natale. The board life members and members of Campbelltown City Soccer Club, all of us, extend our heartfelt condolences to the Natale family on the passing of Giuseppe (Joe) Natale.

Joe Natale was born on 1 January 1927 in the town of Sulmona in the Abruzzo province of central Italy. He migrated in the early 1950s and lived locally in the morning shadow of the beautiful Black Hill of the Mount Lofty Ranges, which continues to overlook his beloved Campbelltown City Soccer Club. He was instrumental in floating the idea of establishing a football or a soccer club. I would like to acknowledge his outstanding service as a coach, as a player, as an administrator and as a supporter. Vale Guiseppe (Joe) Natale. May he rest in peace.
