TOUCH football made a re­turn to the Biggenden sport­ing cal­en­dar on Tues­day, af­ter 15 years.

Many agreed it was great to see the lights on at the sports re­serve.

Big Eng Bar­racu­das won the open­ing game 5-4 over Coal­stoun Lakes team, Salted Peanuts, while Sam’s team had a 12-2 run­away win over Bits and Pieces.

Com­ments from the side­line in­cluded “Who talked me into this rub­bish”, “Give me my wa­ter bot­tle be­fore I die”, “You’ve got to run”, “But I don’t want to run”, “It was a good idea at the time but I think I am go­ing to die” and “Where’s the de­fib­ril­la­tor?”

Biggenden Apex Club made a do­na­tion to get the club back up and run­ning.

Biggenden Touch Football As­so­ci­a­tion’s Jess Bar­gen­quast said the club was grate­ful for the sup­port from this com­mu­nity group.

“This has gone to pur­chas­ing much needed equip­ment, and the ba­sic costs in­volved with start­ing up a club,” Bar­gen­quast said.

Biggenden Touch Football will also hold in­ter-town com­pe­ti­tions.

TEAM SPIRIT: Mem­bers of the Salted Peanuts team Rus­sell Thomp­son, Lisa Scholl, Michelle and An­drew Seabrook are happy to see touch football has re­turned to Biggenden.
