Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A LO­CAL club is hop­ing to of­fer kids in­spired to pick up a foot­ball by start of the AFL sea­son an av­enue to fol­low their dreams.

THE AFL sea­son is now four rounds in and a lo­cal foot­ball club is wait­ing to of­fer a new batch of in­spired kids the chance to kick goals.

Cock­burn Ju­nior Foot­ball Club pres­i­dent Wayne Fernie said the Hamil­ton Hill-based club was look­ing to at­tract new fam­i­lies and play­ers.

“Cock­burn was once a pow­er­house club but has dwin­dled due to it be­ing in an older area,” he said.

Mr Fernie said the club had been putting in ex­tra work to at­tract new play­ers.

There were path­ways for ju­nior play­ers if they were keen to fol­low the sport right through to the top.

“We are a small fam­ily ori­ented club where play­ers get a fair go,” Mr Fernie said.
