In a first for the Cobram Junior Soccer Association, this week’s matches were split between Yarrawonga and Finley.
Both towns attracted a huge crowd with many grandparents and other spectators enjoying a change of venue.
It was terrific to see both venues now have permanent metal goals, which is a terrific initiative by the committee.
A large amount of work went into the organisation of the venues.
To list names of individuals is always fraught with danger and for that reason a genuine thank you is extended to the entire soccer community.
The marking of the grounds, relocating of goals, catering, serving of food, refereeing, coaching and tidying up all required significant effort and for that everyone is to be congratulated.
With soccer on the road it was reported that President Pino spoilt Canteen guru Kylie to a lavish breakfast to celebrate Kylie’s birthday.
Planning has commenced for representative soccer at the end of the season, teams have started to be selected and any queries should be directed to Mick Wane.
Training will continue this week with Cobram on Monday, Finley on Tuesday and Yarrawonga on Wednesday.
It is evident which kids have been training and all are encouraged to attend these sessions.
This week is the final round before the holidays and all matches are being played at Cobram.
