Wow we’re back on the pitch

June 2nd, 2022

EXCITEMENT was in the air at Ulmarra last weekend as South Services Gunners juniors returned to the field for the first time this season.

The Gunners juniors (8s-11s) played their first matches of the season in Ulmarra after their grounds at Rushforth Park were unavailable due to the abundance of wet weather.

After waiting so long to play this season, the smiles were plastered on the young players faces which pleased Gunners seniors vice-president Amanda Donohue.

“The smiles on their faces said it all, and to finally take the field again was awesome,” she said.

“A lot of the parents were asking when we were going to play, so it was great to be back on the pitch and so cool to watch them enjoying themselves again.

“They were saying ‘wow we’re back on the pitch’ and the looks on their faces said it all.

“To finally get the kids back on the field was a great thing to see.”

The start to their season had been up in the air due to the weather.

“It was so unknown with the wild weather, and no one expected the rain and weather, it’s been crazy,” Amanda said.

“Rushforth Park has been closed as our fields a mess because nothings been able to dry out and the water is up to the canteen, so we haven’t been able to train.”

Donohue was looking forward to more juniors experiencing the thrill of their first games of the season.

“Hopefully we get the under 6’s and 7’s up and running in the next few weeks so the littlies can have a run on the fields,” she said.
