Glorious goals in soccer
It was back to Apex Reserve, the spiritual base of the Cobram Junior Soccer Association, after a week of matches in Finley.
President Pino Ballerini continues to be amazed at the run of awesome weather this season.
The soccer was at the usual high standard and the ability of the players to pass the ball out of defence and set up attacking moves is impressive.
The ability to put players into open space with a clever pass is great to see.
The Cobram Junior Soccer Association is thriving with more than 300 players and the parental input continues to be vital.
A big thank you to the referees who officiate every Saturday. They all do an outstanding job and it is great to see so many juniors taking on this role, everyone appreciates their efforts.
Round 6 of soccer is at Yarrawonga this week. The grounds are marked and the legendary cake stall is being prepared. Parents are asked to volunteer as needed to assist in the catering. It is hoped there will be a massive crowd in attendance.
Over the next few weeks there will be information on representative soccer distributed and all players are encouraged to try out for these teams.
