HE WAS a legend in the NRL, playing with the Newcastle Knights and Penrith Panthers and was named 1990’s Dally M Winger of the Year.
Now Indigenous footballer Ashley Gordon has turned his attention to helping people off the field.
Mr Gordon now manages the Warruwi Gambling Help program and will visit Wagga on Wednesday to have a yarn about problem gambling.
This free event will give residents the rare opportunity to hear the former high school teacher speak about his football career, educating people with drug, alcohol and gambling issues and his passion for making a difference for Indigenous people.
The event is open to all and will take place at Ngurra Ashmont Hub at 15 Blakemore Street on Wednesday from 11.30am to 2pm.
