Pilbara News - - Sport - Alicia Per­era

The first North West Mas­ters AFL Carnival will be held this Satur­day at the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex.

Hosted by the Kar­ratha Mud­crabs, the North West 9s event will see play­ers from Kar­ratha, Port Hed­land, Broome and New­man face off in the in­au­gu­ral day-long carnival. Teams of over-35s will play a nine-a-side com­pe­ti­tion in two 10-minute halves on a soc­cer-sized field with nor­mal con­tact rules, all in the usual friendly spirit of Mas­ters foot­ball.

Games are sched­uled to start at 3pm, with the grand fi­nal listed for 7.30pm.

Carnival di­rec­tor Justin Fromm said the com­mit­tee was ex­pect­ing a lot of fun on and off the field, with com­men­tary go­ing from the side­lines “for a laugh”, cater­ing and a bouncy cas­tle for chil­dren.

He said plans were al­ready in place to make the carnival big­ger and bet­ter in fu­ture years.
