PHOTOS: Junior players step up for Interclub Challenge Cup
SOUTH Burnett players tested their skills against teams from Chinchilla and Dalby in round one of the Interclub Challenge Cup.
Kingaroy Redbacks president Jordan Bennett said Saturday's games in Wondai for the under12-13 and cadets players was an opportunity for players from Nanango, Barambah and Kingaroy to step it up and see how they performed against different teams.
"It is always a good thing for our competition, because being a three-club competition you play the same teams regularly and this is a great opportunity for them to stretch their legs and take on a new challenge,” Bennett said.
The Football South Burnett junior competition is now in full swing and Bennett said the talent on display and the attitude of players was a credit to all involved.
"Everyone is settling in well, and we had weeks called off because of the weather but players and coaches have responded well and they can hold their heads high with the effort they have shown,” he said.
"We have had really good reports from parents and families that everyone has been respectful and everyone has embraced the spirit of the game.”
The South Burnett clubs are still welcoming players in all age groups.
