Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) ALDI MiniRoos Development Officer Tom Oldaker attended the Bellbird Junior Football Club U6 & U7 gala day in the Hunter Valley on Sunday, with players and spectators alike enjoying a glorious sunny day for football.
The day was attended by 11 clubs from Hunter Valley Football and saw around 180 players take part in what was a great day had by all.
“Gala days provide children with a great opportunity to play lots of football,” Oldaker said. “Children learn football by playing football, so the more time players spend kicking a ball around the more they will develop their football skills.”
“Football is all about having fun with friends and gala days are a great way to promote football as a fun sport, as well as provide these additional opportunities for players to participate and learn new skills,” Oldaker said.
To add to the fun of the Bellbird Gala Day, Oldaker took with him the ALDI inflatable shooting target and provided giveaways to players courtesy of NNSWF’s Major Partner in Community Football, Newcastle Permanent.
NNSWF would like to thank Vicki Newsome King and Bellbird Junior FC on organising such a great day and providing children with another opportunity to play football within a fun, friendly environment.
