Two hundred soccer players took part in the first ever Yarrawonga round of the Cobram Junior Soccer Association on Saturday morning.June 3, 2014 4:58pm
It was possibly the biggest crowd to watch a sporting event at Vic Park as parents, grandparents and friends came from as far as Finley to witness the wonderful event.
Two years ago Yarrawonga had a single team. On Saturday there were 95 kids representing our region. Soccer has had a rapid growth and having a round in Yarrawonga was a reward for an amazing amount of effort parents have put in.
A large amount of work went into the organisation of the event.
To list names of individuals is always fraught with danger and for that reason a genuine thank you is extended to our 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.
The amount of cakes donated to sell with the barbecue had to be seen to be believed.
A significant profit was made from the canteen. A portion of this money will be returned to the Cobram Junior Soccer Association whilst the remainder will be invested in training equipment to ensure our players continue to develop their skills.
Once again the soccer played by all teams continues to improve and many players continue to kick lots of goals.
It was extremely exciting to see the following players kick their first goals for the season; Lucy Judd, Mikayla Demaio, Lucy Bassett, Tom Cowling, Sam Bigger, Hugh Mullins and Liam Tanner.
