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.

‘‘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.

‘‘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.
