Local ladies have dusted off their favourite footy jumpers in preparation for the eagerly awaited Blighty versus All Stars women’s football match.

Liz Gough collapsed at the family’s Fawns Rd property near Blighty on Friday, February 28.
Her illness had initially puzzled some of the world’s leading doctors, however the mother-of-two has since been diagnosed with epileptic myo-donic jerks which cause involuntary movements in her limbs, face spasms and seizures.
Liz has been at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne since she collapsed and has made steady progress following an operation where doctors cut the signals in her brain that allow movement to her right arm and leg.
She celebrated her 53rd birthday and first day at the Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre in Kew on Wednesday.
Tomorrow’s fun day, which is being organised by Paula Rutter, will help buy a vehicle with wheelchair access for the family.
There will be raffles and a monster goods and services auction, followed by karaoke.
Auction prizes include a Deni Ute Muster VIP backstage experience and Blues & Roots Festival double pass.
There’s also five corporate tickets to the North Melbourne versus Richmond match on June 8 at Etihad Stadium and a six-month Motiv8 gym membership.
Raffle prizes include pamper packs, homewares, vouchers and more with tickets available from Mobil North Roadhouse on Davidson St.
‘‘We’ve had a lot of interest and have already sold $1000 in raffle tickets,’’ Mrs Rutter said.
‘‘Anyone interested in playing either the footy or netball matches who hasn’t signed up can just turn up on the day and we’ll find a place for you.
‘‘All profits from the gate, canteen and bar will go to the Gough Family Trust, which was proudly and kindly donated by the Blighty Football and Netball Club.
‘‘Harley Davidson motorbike rides with Josh and John Creenaune will also be run on the day with proceeds going directly to the trust.’’
Entry to the event is $10 per adult at the gate.
Buses will run from Deniliquin and Finley, with bookings essential for numbers to be finalised.
