Sup­port builds for game

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

SOC­CER is the game of choice for a lot of par­ents and chil­dren in Mun­dub­bera and Gayn­dah.

Two-way meets be­tween the two towns have been the only soc­cer played in the North Bur­nett for many years.

But the num­bers are build­ing and the prospects of hav­ing a stronger com­pe­ti­tion are good.

“I like to play soc­cer be­cause I like to be a goalie in these two-way meets,” 11-year-old Gayn­dah player Lochlann Terms said.

“I get to kick and run the ball with­out get­ting tack­led.

“Play­ing against the other towns gives me a chance to find new friend that don’t go to my school.”

Play­ing at the Mun­dub­bera State School oval and run­ning a can­teen also gives the small clubs a chance to raise some funds to keep the clubs alive and run­ning.

When in Gayn­dah, the clubs play at the foot­ball grounds and sup­port is gain­ing mo­men­tum.

“Gayn­dah play­ers have been com­ing to Mun­dub­bera for the first half of the sea­son and this was our last home game,” par­ent and coach Dutch An­beek said.

“In two weeks’ time we will start go­ing down to Gayn­dah to play.”

Pri­mary school-aged chil­dren are most rep­re­sented in the clubs and both clubs are al­ways look­ing for play­ers.

Soc­cer is a grow­ing sport and there are the op­por­tu­ni­ties for both girls and boys.
