Young AFL players making their mark

TWELVE teams, 108 primary school children and a whole lot of fun was had at the Australian Football League's (AFL) Paul Kelly Cup at Wherrett Park, Maclean, yesterday.

Yamba Primary School won the cup, in the region's premier AFL competition for primary school students.

“It's a long-standing competition for about 10 years now and it just keeps getting bigger and better,” AFL Northern NSW regional manager Mark Heaney said.

“For instance the winning team only had three or four AFL players in it. The rest just wanted to come and play some footy.”

Yamba will now move on to the regional final at the BCU International Stadium at Coffs Harbour.
