Gayndah represents region
TOUCH: The Gayndah junior touch team recently competed at the Junior State Cup Carnival in Hervey Bay, doing the Burnett proud.
The carnival has been a long standing tradition for the club with Gayndah representing for the past seven years.
Gayndah had 27 kids who competed in Hervey Bay.
Junior co-ordinator for Gayndah, Lisa Darlington said the teams played well in Hervey Bay.
“We brought three teams from Gayndah and combined with Childers,” Darlington said.
“A couple of teams also played from Hervey Bay, we noticed that we’re not the strongest when we go away but everyone played well and represented their region in a good manner.”
The under 14 team for Gayndah had a win against Ipswich, with the score 2–1.
“This was the first time the team had ever won with the under 14 which was excellent news,” Darlington said.
“Our under 12 girls didn’t have any wins and went down 14–7.”
The junior season is about to get started with sign on next Wednesday, July 19, from 4pm at the Gayndah sports grounds.
The season will cost $30. “It’s a great way to improve your fitness,” Darlington said.
“We’d encourage kids to participate in the junior touch team as you get to participate as part of a team and it’s for all abilities.
“It’s very affordable for families within the North Burnett region.”
