LACE up your boots be­cause the foot­ball sea­son is quickly ap­proach­ing and last year’s pre­miers Mun­dub­bera Tigers are sign­ing on.

Get down to the foot­ball fields tonight at 6pm. There will be a game of touch and a bar­be­cue.

Last year’s pre­miers are an­tic­i­pat­ing a swel­ter­ing sea­son, with some tough en­coun­ters ahead.

Bert Bee­z­ley has com­mit­ted to coach­ing for another sea­son.

Last sea­son’s Tigers cap­tain Ja­cob Kim­ber said the team had been train­ing, with only a few of the boys com­ing down.

“I would like to see plenty of the play­ers get fair dinkum now we are hav­ing our sign-on,” Kim­ber said.

“If we are go­ing to take it out again this year we need to get a good start – that means be­ing fit.”

Tigers pres­i­dent Tracy McCarthy said com­ing off a very suc­cess­ful 2014 re­sult, the play­ers were ex­cited about the up­com­ing sea­son.

“It looks like we will have the majority of play­ers re­turn­ing this year and, of course, new play­ers are al­ways wel­come,” McCarthy said.

“The boys have been look­ing for­ward to get­ting stuck into train­ing and we would like to wel­come any in­ter­ested play­ers to join us on Thurs­day night for a bar­be­cue and game of touch foot­ball,” she said.

Ju­niors are wel­come to head along and sign on then as well, but there will be a sep­a­rate ju­nior sign-on event held at a later date.

Ja­cob Kim­ber We need to get a good start – that means be­ing fit.
