MONBULK JUNIOR FOOTBALL
A bright and warm winter’s day greeted the players of Monbulk Junior Football Club and opposition clubs. The day saw all the teams at home except for two, which ventured to Upwey-Tecoma. With the sun shining, all players took to the field and had varied successes. Next week sees a mid-season break with multiple players taking part in Interleague competition.

Our home game against Emerald today with our guys playing with great enthusiasm. We had plenty of the ball again and created scoring chances. The guys continued to improve and when we are all concentrating we move the footy around well.

UNDER 12 GIRLS
The main message today was to play in front in defence and attack. The girls followed this message and lead their opponents to the ball for most of the day. It was an amazing effort against the form side of the competition. It was a great team effort all over the ground.
Awards: I. Linde, M. Laven, C. Barker, M. Roodenburg, S. Green.

Attitude and effort was what the club asked the boys to bring today. Great to see what happens when attitude and effort are applied. Three fantastic quarters; boys not lacking in the last but out on their feet. Hard with only 15 kids, but plenty of game time; keep up the effort boys.
