Last Saturday United travelled down to Macorna for a scratch match in the Netball and Football.

Thanks very much to the Macorna club for their hospitality on the dya. It was a really great turn out for both clubs.

In the footy we had to borrow a couple from them to fill a full team and these boys played well for us. Much appreciated.

A good mixture of Colts, Reserves and Seniors participated - a couple of the recruits were able to play as well which was a good training run for them and Coaches Ash Thompson and Marty Shadbolt to see how they perform. We had players travel from Bendigo as well which was terrific.

Things are starting to take shape for a good year. So dont forget to get your membership of club shirts organised now.
