The Lawrie Evens Memorial Challenge match between Victorian Metro and Vic Country Masters football teams, is being held at Mulwala’s Lonsdale Reserve this Sunday, June 10.

There are two matches between the slick super stars from the city, up against the brash and talented boys from the bush.

These memorial games are held each year in honour of Lawrie Evans, a past treasurer of the AFL Victoria Masters Football.

Laurie was a tireless worker and supporter of Masters football who passed away in 2008 after a battle with cancer.

Game one, 35 and over, begins at 2pm followed by the 50+ Masters going head to head at 3.30pm. The games are played in great spirit but with bragging rights on the line the players will be looking to prove who are the Masters of the Masters are in each age group, the City Slickers or Country Champions.

The canteen and refreshments will be available so come along and enjoy the day.

You will witness some of the classic moves of the legends of the past and get a chance to see if you could measure up as a Masters footballer of the future.

The only criteria is that you need to reached the grand age of 35 years, be willing to have fun and stay fit by maintaining your involvement in the game you love to play.

Local football identity Lee James has been championing getting a masters football team up and running in Yarrawonga-Mulwala, after becoming involved in the Murray Crays team out of Wodonga.

Lee has been super impressed by the fun, fitness benefits and great camaraderie he has experienced since he joined in the masters competition last year.

Many players miss out on the social benefits that are a great part of being involved a football club once they finish their careers.
