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.
The netballers didn't keep scores but had a good pre season work out against their girls.
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.
the club is again involved in the Tyntynder Night Series.
Come along on Friday 23rd March at 8.40 pm to watch the boys in action. There will be two games earlier if you want to get there and enjoy a cheap nights entertainment.
Netball will also be played.
$5.00 a person. Food and Drinks available at the ground.
Get on board and show your support for the club.
