More touch teams in 2014

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THE 2014 sea­son is look­ing good for Whit­sun­day touch, with more teams sign­ing up for the Mon­day night com­pe­ti­tion, that will be­gin with a warm-up scratch match next Mon­day, 10 Fe­bru­ary.

The sign on took place on Mon­day night, and some new faces en­teried teams to chal­lenge com­pe­ti­tion stal­warts like Ray White, Amal­ga­mated and The Wolves.

A mix­ture of men and women from the marine scene have en­tered their team, The Boat­ies, and Nau­ti­cool are also a new team. Ru­mours are JJ Richards and Pow­ered by Mur­phy may be en­ter­ing a team, look­ing to chal­lenge the ex­ist­ing champions. With about seven or eight teams en­tered in both grades, or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for­ward to kick-off on Mon­day, 17 Fe­bru­ary. Any­one in­ter­ested in play­ing, should come along to the warmup matches this Mon­day from 6pm.

All games will be played on the top (AFL) field while the bot­tom field re­cov­ers from be­ing top dressed in 2013. The bot­tom field is look­ing the best it has in years, and to en­sure it will be a top field for the 2014 sea­son, a work­ing bee will be held this Sun­day, 9 Fe­bru­ary from 3.30pm. Many hands make light work, and with good num­bers the work clear­ing the field of weeds should take min­i­mum time. Please bring gloves, and weed­ing tools to help.

Any play­ers be­tween the ages of 13-16 years old can join in the ju­nior touch com­pe­ti­tion, run­ning from Au­gust to De­cem­ber. The com­mit­tee will also run Aus­touch for un­der-13’s in the last term of 2014, af­ter the suc­cess­ful in­tro­duc­tion of the pro­gram in the last months of 2013.

The club’s AGM will be at 7pm on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 17 at the club­house, and new com­mit­tee mem­bers are wel­come to nom­i­nate.

For more in­for­ma­tion about the 2014 sea­son or the work­ing bee this Sun­day, please con­tact Justin But­ler on 0418 622 224.
