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.
