Our Tiger Cubs made their debut in the Junior competition at the Football 4 All Gala day and made a positive impression, as well as winning all their games. The Football 4 All Gala day is an established Athletes with a Disability (AWD) competition day run by Football NSW. It attracts about 40 teams across all age groups. The Tiger Cubs team was made up of our regular Football Camp players Cameron Murray, Michael Gleave, Josh Clare, Jackson Love, Jackson Anderson, plus newcomer Matt Engesser Also, three complete new players, Ryan Conroy, Charlie Roussac, and Liam Togher, were also there on the day.

The Tiger Cubs played five games and won them all, and just about everybody got on the score sheet. The team showed wonderful sportsmanship, and their energy levels did not dip despite the hot conditions. Many of the parents and coaches watching complimented the team on their advanced skills and team work, and the passing was excellent, with players using the confined space get around packed defences to shot into very small goals. Chris Pyne, Head Coach of the Football program, would have been pleased with the performance.

An important part of the day was meeting other AWD teams, many of which were all eager to have further contact with us, and are keen to attend the next Football camp to provide opposition to our teams. We even got an invitation to play in Wagga!!
