Storm Holds Long Enough for Smooth Wedding

Article excerpt

CONGRATULATIONS to former Australian Hockeyroos striker Amy Kickbusch (nee Korner) on her recent wedding, which provided plenty of unexpected activity to talk about in future years.

Amy and Matthew Kickbusch were married at Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast on September 20.

Matt and Amy honeymooned in Fiji. They are looking forward to moving into their new house together.

Phantom wishes you both every future happiness.

It has affected the strength and feeling in his legs, meaning Currie is prone to falling over, though he is much better now than early in his recovery.

He used to carry his mobile phone with him wherever he went because if he fell over he couldn't get back up.
