Good things come in threes at Coutts Crossing

April 12th, 2021

In North Coast Football there’s a traditional pyramid structure in clubland – a broad base of juniors with a smaller pointy end of seniors – just not at Coutts Crossing.
That’s what makes the village community club remarkable and resilient.
“We’ve actually managed to hustle together another senior team just in time, so we’ll have a 2nd Division team which we believe will be fairly competitive and two 3rd Division teams,” club president Mitch Henwood said.
“We’ll have just the one junior team, an Under 15s – and unfortunately we didn’t have enough for a women’s team which is a little bit disappointing but we’ll try again next year.”
Mitch said the Cougars were in good shape after adding a third senior team for season 2021.
“We’d really like to build the junior numbers up,” Mitch said, noting the challenge was that of local kids going to school in nearby Grafton and linking with clubs there.
