Footy Fever

Blue played Black today in the minis-colts. According to the coach/umpire, it was a draw. Everyone was a winner. The teams were made up with whoever turns up on the day.  The kids play in the goal circle during half time of the A grade match, using the real goals at one end and portable goals (made from plough discs and water pipe) at the other. The guernseys are left over from the old Junior colts teams and most of the boys wear them as dresses, but the boys don’t seem to care. They get to run around, burn off some steam and kick a footy. At the end they all come off the field as one group, comparing stories of who had the best tackle for the day and who had the best kick.

And the coach is right, everybody does win – especially football!
