Numero Uno Celebrates 10 years!

Celebrating 10 Years in Business
Congratulations Numero Uno!

Congratulations to one of our valued Sponsors - Sam and John at Numero Uno Pizza and Pasta. Last week they celebrated 10 years since taking over the iconic Altona Pizza shop and becoming part of the Altona community.
Sam, John, and their son Ryan run the local business that is a favourite with many locals.
Numero Uno have supported many local clubs over the years and in recent years have become a strong supporter of the Altona Junior Football Club, embracing it as their football club.
When we asked why Numero Uno sponsor our club? John replied, “He loves to see the look on the kid’s faces when they come in with their awards”. He knows the weekly team award they contribute makes a player’s day. The Coaches use the award to encourage and reward young players for doing their best.
Numero Uno is open 7 days a week. On Monday to Friday from 10am to late, and for breakfast from 8:30am on the weekends. If you aren’t already a regular, drop in and try them out. You won’t be disappointed.

It’s through the generous support of people like Sam and John that our club remains strong and we can ensure that our young people continue to have a great football club to be proud of.

Congratulations Numero Uno
from the AJFC!
