Stan­thorpe City Foot­ball Club pres­i­dent Tony Ei­nam said foot­ball was a great sport that was suit­able for any­one to play from kids to adults.

He said the foot­ball clubs had great at­mos­pheres, with pos­i­tive feed­back from the play­ers.

“Most of the play­ers we have come back to play for us ev­ery year.”

He said over­all the sport was about giv­ing the kids and adults an op­por­tu­nity to have some fun.

“There’s no big thing about win­ning or los­ing for our club,” he said.

“Get­ting out there and hav­ing a strong club is more im­por­tant than win­ning. “Win­ning is just a bonus.” He en­cour­aged any­one

in­ter­ested in foot­ball to join one of the clubs.
