Sport shorts August 21st
It was a relatively quiet weekend for the last round of home games for Guyra Junior Soccer for this season. The Under 6 Spooks had a forfeit, the Under 7 Jellybeans had the BYE and the Under 8 teams faced each other in a derby match. The Under 9 Jets were the only team to travel to Armidale. Our Under 16s, 14s and 12s all donned black armbands in honour of Darryl Dowden. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
Nominations are now open for the Jack Vallance Junior Memorial Carnival that was postponed due to the snow. The carnival will now be held on Sunday 1st of September. Please speak to your team coach if you wish to take part in the carnival.
