Gin Gin on look­out for ju­nior foot­ballers

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE un­der-12s are al­ready hit­ting the park for regular train­ing ses­sions, but Gin Gin Foot­ball Club is hope­ful a lot more join the club.

Gin Gin will hold the first of its three of­fi­cial sign-on days at the foot­ball field to­day.

Sign-on days are planned for the next two Thurs­days and pres­i­dent Ann-Ma­ree Ma­hon is hope­ful the club can nudge last year’s num­bers.

“Back in 2013 we only had the three teams, but last year we man­aged to get five,” Ma­hon said.

“That was pretty mas­sive for us.”

It’s not too late for other U12 play­ers to join with only the bare num­bers ready to go.

Ma­hon said some of last year’s suc­cess in terms of num­bers came on the back of vis­its from A-League club Bris­bane Roar.

An­other Roar visit is ten­ta­tively sched­uled for April 13, and cou­pled with

Ann-Ma­ree Ma­hon

The first game in Bund­aberg is on March 14 so it’s creep­ing up.

Australia’s suc­cess­ful Asian Cup cam­paign, foot­ball fever has caught on.

Now all Ma­hon wants is for that to trans­late into num­bers.

“The first game in Bund­aberg is on March 14 so it’s creep­ing up,” Ma­hon said.

“We usu­ally get the 12s, 10s are usu­ally pretty strong, U6s, 7s and 9s as well.

“We’re hop­ing the Roar will help our num­bers again this year.”

For more in­for­ma­tion phone Ma­hon on 0438 510 741 or visit the fields at to­day’s sign-on.
