Cold no barrier for Northern Inland Miniroos

July 27th, 2017

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) ALDI MiniRoos Development Officer Tom Oldaker visited Northern Inland on the weekend for a match day visit to the central hub system in Armidale.

Due to the Armidale District being such a large area clubs meet at a central location in Armidale to play their ALDI MiniRoos games.

‘Having a central hub system is a great idea which minimises travel time for clubs. This means players get to spend less time travelling and more time playing football,” Oldaker said.

“Even with minus 6 degree temperatures overnight and zero on the morning of the games, it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the players…and there was plenty of hot coffee for the parents,’ Oldaker said.

The day was attended by seven (7) clubs from the Armidale district.

“It was a great opportunity to see players from lots of different clubs and speak to coaches and parents about their ALDI MiniRoos experiences,” Oldaker said.

To add to the match day experience, Oldaker had with him the ALDI inflatable shooting target and rewarded players with prize giveaways courtesy of NNSWF’s Major Partner in Community Football, Newcastle Permanent.

Giving the players the opportunity to have a turn on the shooting target provides extra fun for them. “it’s great to see how excited the children get when shooting at the target. It is providing that additional fun experience to game day which means children develop an even greater love for the game,” Oldaker said.

Oldaker will be working closely with Northern Inland football in the off season to find ways of providing more opportunities for players to play especially in the more remote areas.

NNSWF would like to thank Jean Bone and Armidale District Football Association for all their hard work and effort in making community football a great experience for all in the Armidale District.
