Northern NSW Football, Club Development Officer, Phillip Andrews said the team at the Rainbow Warriors FC had worked in conjunction with its Member Zone – Football Mid North Coast and local football club Taree Wildcats FC to provide this opportunity within the community for more kids to play football.

“The success of the inaugural program in 2018 was significant and highlighted the need for all abilities football in the community.

“Rainbow Warriors FC is looking to grow its player and volunteer base for the 2019 season and engage further with opportunities offered by Northern NSW Football, if anyone is interested in playing or volunteering, I encourage them to get in touch with the club directly” he concluded.
