AFP Helping Out AFL PNG Niukick Program

The AFL PNG Community Clinic program has attracted Officers from the Australian Federal Police, making use of their free time to mingle with footy fans.

David Gleeson and Malcolm Scott have been teaming up with AFL PNG’s Development Officers to run community clinics in the city.


Both officers were not new in the footy arena and have raised bars in their eras.


Malcolm Scott has played for AFL St Kilda not knowing that one day he would be standing in front of a young crowd, encouraging them to take up the sport.


The first community clinic was held at Kaugere, on the 8th of March, which chummed out a fairly good participation from the local community, mostly young boys and girls, and last weekend, another community clinic was held at the Taurama barracks, with four more AFP officers assisting.


With the increased support from the Australian Football League and the corporate sponsors, AFL PNG is in a good position to further develop the sport from the grassroots level up to the senior level.
