Sunraysia footy gathering
Thursday, 10th June, 2010
The city's junior footballers will take on a host of interstate rivals this weekend at the Sunraysia Junior AFL Carnival.
Three local teams (Under 11, 13 and 15) will be making the trip to compete at the carnival, and will face off against teams from Riverland, the Mid-Murray district and Mildura.
The Under 11 side was victorious at the carnival last year, and all three teams will be hoping to emulate that success.
The teams will be coached by Terry Mutch (Under 11), Tony Tiziani and Dean Martin (Under 13), and Kym Ferguson (Under 15).
Mr Mutch said the trip would be a great test of skill for all players involved.
"All sides have been in training for the last five weeks, and we should be very competitive in all three grades. It is a great opportunity to represent Broken Hill.
"With some very talented juniors coming through next year the Broken Hill Junior Football Association will hopefully have a lot more representative games which will benefit the juniors.
