Yamba sweet for sustained campaign

April 6th, 2021

Snakes, ladders, ifs and buts – Yamba have had to bring their planning game to this year’s North Coast Football competition.
“Overall, the club is doing pretty well, particularly in the juniors and the lower age groups,” Yamba president Mark Skippings said.
In the senior men, player registrations were in no man’s land – possibly too many for one side, but not enough to sustain two outfits across a season.
So Yamba have plumped for a men’s 3rd Division entry – and on the upside will also field a senior women’s team in 2021, which they couldn’t muster last year.
“So we’ll still have two senior teams and it’s a good thing to have the women back,” Mark said.
The preseason weather of course hasn’t been kind.
Despite council spending a lot of money on Yamba’s fields, the wet has been just too wet.
“It’s compromised the start of our season and we’ve had to find other facilities for training … but we’re excited about the season ahead,” Mark said.
