MONBULK JUNIOR FOOTBALL
After the weekend off because of the school holidays, there were many excited kids ready and raring to play.
As the season progresses with only a few rounds left, teams are starting to play to coach’s instructions and putting together four-quarter games.
Another mixed bag of successes on the field and many cold extremities as the day started early for a couple of the teams.
