Moama will be buzzing with young footballers when it hosts the Goulburn Campaspe Junior Football League Interleague Carnival on Sunday.

Boasting competitions in under 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17 age groups, the Moama Recreation Reserve, Jack Eddy oval and Brick Alley oval will get a big workout from about 9am to 4.30pm, with presentations to follow.

While it is a great chance for young players to gain extra experience in a competitive environment, among the crowd are sure to be scouts from TAC Cup sides Bendigo Pioneers and Murray Bushrangers.

‘‘AFL players like Ollie Wines, Jack Viney, Brett Deledio, Andrew Walker and Jarman Impey are some who have taken part in this tournament,’’ GCJFL president Brian Wilkinson said.

With 23 teams and about 600 players expected to take part on the day, Wilkinson said he was expecting a big day.

‘‘It has been a huge effort by our secretary, Rachael Shandley, but the organising is going along nicely,’’ he said.

‘‘This year we have a new team coming in from the Loddon Valley Football League for the under 17s, while we also have an extra team in the under 16s.

‘‘It has generally been a fantastic atmosphere and I don’t expect anything different.

‘‘We are blessed by the weather and it should be a good day.’’

Entry costs $8 for adults, while children are free.
