Majos to field two senior sides as junior talent builds
EVEN though a ball hasn't been kicked in local football in 2015, Majos Football Club looks set for one of its best seasons.
The club said it would field two senior teams, doubling its normal representation at that level, and a host of talented junior outfits.
"It's looking phenomenal for the season ahead," president Carmel Thompson said.
"We are a good club that is here for our players and the numbers we are looking at this season show players are attracted by that," Thompson said.
The seniors have started training under new club coach Aaron Kennedy, a teacher at McAuley Catholic College.
Kennedy has helped attract more young players who have had to lot to do with him at school level.
"They all look up to him," Thompson said.
"He is a very impressive person."
She said the two senior teams would play in Second Division and Third Division competitions.
At junior level Majos teams will range from under-6 to under-16.
"Every club is out there to win and we're no different, but mostly for Majos it is all about the children and having fun," Thompson said.
"We focus on enjoyment in training and on the field."
The club will host a sign-on day at Grafton District Services Club today from 10am-1pm. Players can also register at the myfootball.com.au website.
Majos seek more junior coaches and sponsors for the season ahead.
Sponsors are particularly needed for the teams in the popular junior age groups from under-6 to under-11 so new jerseys can be bought.
"Sponsorship for those age groups is just $550 and gets a business's name on the jersey," Thompson said.
"Those jerseys will be worn for four to five years so it's really good, long-lasting publicity for any business."
Interested sponsors should contact Thompson on 0411 799 268.
