Kids kick­ing goals

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to the more than 200 chil­dren who par­tic­i­pated in the Dou­glas United Football Club’s an­nual Ju­nior Small Sided Football Car­ni­val held at the club’s Cas­sowary Park grounds re­cently.

Thanks to the coaches, par­ents and se­niors who as­sisted in pre­par­ing the club house and grounds and the smooth run­ning of the car­ni­val on the day.

Par­tic­u­lar thanks to Lin­ton and Tara Quirk for their de­vo­tion to the can­teen and to the Wildlife Habi­tat Port Dou­glas for spon­sor­ship.

It was fan­tas­tic to see so many play­ers and their fam­i­lies trav­el­ling from Cairns for the event with many of them ad­vis­ing they would con­sider again vis­it­ing Port Dou­glas and the sur­round­ing area.

Also, the Dou­glas United Football Club re­cently hosted a lo­cal pri­mary school gala day for more than 80 chil­dren of school Years 4 to 7.

It was bril­liant to see so many chil­dren “have a go” and try the sport.

The club is ap­pre­cia­tive of the teach­ers coach­ing on the day and to Tony Too our Un­der-11 club coach.

Well done to all the chil­dren who par­tic­i­pated in good sports­man­ship and who were well be­haved, po­lite and cour­te­ous.

The chil­dren’s re­spect for the club equip­ment and as­sis­tance in put­ting out and put­ting away equip­ment re­flects the good teach­ing in our lo­cal schools.

The club of­fers pro­grams for chil­dren aged three years to Un­der-11s and de­tails are avail­able from the club’s web­site www. .

The club is ac­tively seek­ing chil­dren aged Uner-11 to join up and in­ter­est of youth want­ing to train and start up teams for 2013.

Look­ing for­ward to the next gala day - bring it on.
