Proser­pine Po­lice ready to take to the touch footy field

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

PROSER­PINE Po­lice have en­tered a team in the sec­ond an­nual Mackay District Po­lice and Emer­gency Ser­vices touch foot­ball tour­na­ment which will be played in Mackay this Sun­day, Au­gust 31.

The event is a fundraiser for the Chil­drens Ward of the Mackay Base Hos­pi­tal.

Last year the Proser­pine Boars made the knock­out stages but nar­rowly missed the B-grade fi­nal, los­ing to North­ern Beaches Sta­tion in a con­tro­ver­sial en­counter marred by in­juries and con­tentious re­fer­ring de­ci­sions.

This year the team hopes to do one bet­ter.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Do­minic Cross said the games were a fun and ca- sual way to get out and about in the com­mu­nity.

The team is look­ing for­ward to a fun game but they do want to win.

The team is cap­tained by Mark Flynn who is the se­nior states­men of the side.

The day con­sists of three pool games and then fi­nals matches.

Proser­pine is the only Po­lice Sta­tion in the Whit­sun­day Shire to en­ter a team this year and will rep­re­sent the North­ern di­vi­sion of the Mackay Po­lice District.

Teams from Mackay Queens­land Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice, Queens­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice, lo­cal me­dia and the Mackay Base Hos­pi­tal have also en­tered.
