Jnr Dragons pre­sen­ta­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Dou­glas United Ju­nior Dragons had their pre­sen­ta­tion at their ground in Cas­sowary last Thurs­day night.

It was a great turn out with most play­ers, coaches and par­ents at­tend­ing. The club cel­e­brated an­other strong sea­son that saw the Un­der 9,10 and 11’s trav­el­ling to En­deav­our Park Cairns on a weekly ba­sis thanks to the com­mit­ment of the par­ents.

The teams did re­ally well - in par­tic­u­lar the un­der 11s who gave away just one loss for the whole sea­son.

Five of th­ese boys were se­lected to rep­re­sent Cairns in a FNQ car­ni­val in Townsville in June and they will be in Cairns all of next week bat­tling against Townsville, In­n­is­fail and other ar­eas.

Some of them will be de­fend­ing their ti­tle as best in FNQ Un­der 11s.

Each year Greta Burke and her fam­ily do­nate ‘‘The Johnny Burke Me­mo­rial Tro­phy’’ to whomever is re­garded as the best and fairest player in the club. The com­mit­tee have a vote and award the tro­phy ac­cord­ingly.

This year the tro­phy was awarded to Jack Carr in recog­ni­tion of ex­cel­lent at­ti­tude over the year - he never misses a train­ing ses­sion and he has a pos­i­tive and en­cour­ag­ing at­ti­tude to the new or less skilled play­ers.

He is a team player and was se­lected to play rep­re­sen­ta­tive football.

The club wishes to all the spon­sors for the sea­son and to the tro­phy spon­sors who made it all pos­si­ble: Squirts - JKC Auto, Moss­man; Un­der 6 - Ross An­dreaseen Back­hoe Hire; Un­der 7s - Sails Struc­tures Port Dou­glas; Un­der 8s - The New­port on Macrossan, Port Dou­glas; Un­der 9s - Low Isles Sailawa; Un­der 10 - Blains Auto, Moss­man; and the Un­der 11s - Moss­man Wel­come Mart.

The club is keen to re­cruit more play­ers to come and join the Dragons next year to learn how to play the ‘‘World Game’’.
