Young­sters get to show off skills

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

AN ex­cited group of young­sters from the Bel­mont Ju­nior Soc­cer Club were cho­sen to play a half­time game at the in­ter­na­tional soc­cer match be­tween Aus­tralia and Iraq at Perth Oval last Thurs­day.

The club was se­lected out of hun­dreds of other clubs to have two five-a-side teams play at half time in front of the 17,000-plus crowd. Pres­i­dent Martin Con­nolly said 10 play­ers aged 8-11 years had been se­lected for the oc­ca­sion.

“It was a fan­tas­tic night and an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence for the kids,” he said.

Mr Con­nolly said he was happy for the par­ents and the chil­dren and thanked Foot­ball West for the op­por­tu­nity.
