Majos laying a platform for future

April 6th, 2021

Class is in at Majos FC for 2021 – on the back of an influx of junior players.
No more has the booster shot been more pronounced than in the Under 6s and 7s.
Club president Matt Green explains: “It’s pretty positive for our juniors. We’ve probably had a 10 per cent increase in the 6s and 7s and we’ll have two 9s teams, plus 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s and 15s.”
With neighbours Grafton City pausing from North Coast Football this year after being unable to form a committee, Majos have been among the beneficiaries, particularly in the 6s to 9s age groups.
The picture hasn’t been quite so pleasing for the seniors.
“We won’t have seniors which is disappointing but it’s been going that way (player wise) for the last few years,” Matt said.
“Numbers have just been up and down.”
And for those wondering about the club’s intriguing name – Matt explains it’s an acronym of local Catholic schools from the 1970s.
