Keeping up with the MiniRoos

#5: Alex ships out to Port

July 23rd, 2019

Oxley Beach

From the 18-20 July, I visited the Football Mid North Coast Region, catching up with a couple of clubs in a brief fun-filled visit.

Heading up the coast on Thursday July 18 and badly in need of a training session, I stopped in to visit Old Bar Barbarians FC at E.G. Trads Playing Fields. I would then be absolutely run ragged by four different ALDI MiniRoos Teams, with games such as “Stuck in the Mud”, “The Traffic Game” and “Rob the Nest” to name a few! I also caught up with Old Bar Secretary Natalie James and some of her hard-working committee people and coaches for a chat on how the 2019 season has progressed!

E.G. Trads Playing Fields

From Old Bar, I then made my way up to Port Macquarie, where I was  based for the remainder of the trip. On Friday evening, I made my way down to Dixie Park for an ALDI MiniRoos Certificate for Coaches, hosted by Port Macquarie United. Club Secretary Gregg McDonald was on hand, along with some dedicated MiniRoos coaches. The group worked up a bit of a sweat, there were quite a few laughs and hopefully some useful coaching hints and tips were taken away! A big thank you to Gregg and the club for hosting and well done on how great Dixie Park is looking this far into the season.

Tuffin’s Lane

The trip was rounded out with a MiniRoos Matchday visit, this time at Port Macquarie United’s Tuffins Lane venue! A whole host of teams from the Mid North Coast region were there, with plenty of enthusiastic kickers winning prizes and taking advantage of the free ALDI fruit that I brought along with me! Thank you once again to Gregg and the Port Macquarie United Volunteers for their hospitality, especially Chris and Darryle in the canteen (that hot dog was delicious)!!!
