Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT - Tobi Lof­tus Tobi.Lof­tus@cnbtimes.com.au

WHILE a Mun­dub­bera and Gayndah clash in a sport­ing com­pe­ti­tion is usu­ally fu­elled with in­tense ri­valry, the town’s ju­nior soc­cer clubs meet reg­u­larly for so­cial and friendly games.

The two towns met in Mun­dub­bera on Satur­day for a game day that def­i­nitely did not fea­ture strong ri­valry.

Mun­dub­bera un­der-9 coach Mark Robert­son said it was a good game day.

“The num­bers were down, as there was a lit­tle bit of sick­ness,” Robert­son said.

“But that hap­pens around this time of year.”

De­spite that, Robert­son said there was a rea­son­able turn out and the play­ers played well.

“We had un­der 7s, un­der 9s and un­der 14s all run­ning,” he said.

“It was good to see them play­ing and hav­ing a run.

“We had about 50 play­ers for Mun­dub­bera all up on Satur­day.”

For keen ju­nior soc­cer play­ers a spe­cial train­ing ses­sion will be held on June 16.

Rock­hamp­ton coach and player David Telford will con­duct a train­ing ses­sion as the Mun­dub­bera State School oval.

The ses­sion be­gins at 4.30pm.
