The amount of interest first shown in girls’ football in the city has started to wane which could mean that the competition might not get off the ground.

Kacee Milnes, a representative of the South Football Club, said there weren’t many girls coming to training now.

The Broken Hill Football League has installed new interchange boxes at the Jubilee Oval that replace the old grey concrete booths that formerly stood in front of the grandstand.

The upgrade is the latest in a long line of improvments at the ground which have included sub-surface irrigation, improved lighting, new fencing and a complete grandstand upgrade.

The Barrier Shinglebacks will travel to Lyrup in the Riverland tomorrow to kick off their Masters season against the Riverland Superdogs.

Representing the Hill for the first time at Masters level will be legendary North/Central/North little man Daryl Butcher; the dashing Jamahl Carr from West debuts in the backlines; whilst the local defence force will also be on show with Russell Dart patrolling the backlines.

The Bulldogs are cleaning out their kennel with a garage sale, and they’re hoping for a little help from their supporters.

North will be holding the garage sale on March 31 before the Lightning Cup, with a variety of memorabilia and items up for grabs.

The club is also hoping for donations of items which can be sold to help raise money for its junior football program.
