Assistance Needed!

With the junior season only a few weeks away, we are seeking everyone’s assistance.

As parents would be aware, junior matches can’t proceed without volunteers.

Certain jobs and officials are required for every game, and this year, we aim to spread the workload evenly, so that every family is contributing, and the same jobs are not left to the same people. We will be implementing a roster system for match days.

A nice way to cap off the first stage of preseason training for our senior and some junior teams last night with some schnags and a chinwag.

A keen student of the game, JJ returns for his first shot at senior football.
