Goals galore at the Lochinvar Rovers gala day

August 14th, 2017

As the ALDI MiniRoos football season comes to an end, Lochinvar Rovers Football Club provided players with one final opportunity to play by hosting an Under 11’s gala day on Sunday 6th August.

Over 270 players from 21 teams took part in the gala day which provided lots of goals and lots of fun.

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) ALDI MiniRoos Football Development Officer Tom Oldaker was on hand to add to the gala day fun by taking the ALDI MiniRoos inflatable shooting target and providing free fruit and sunscreen for the players.

Children got to take turns on the shooting target and win prizes courtesy of NNSWF’s Official Partner in community football, Newcastle Permanent.

“Children love gala days as they provide players with the opportunity to play lots of games,” Oldaker said

“All players want to do is play football, score goals and have fun and gala days provide children with exactly that,” Oldaker concluded.

Lochinvar Rovers are a club who have been working really hard to ensure they provide all involved with the club, the best possible experience.

In April 2017, Lochinvar was the first community club in the Newcastle/Hunter area to achieve Level 2 FFA National Club Accreditation status which is awarded to clubs for meeting criteria of Teams Entered, Club Management & Governance, Child Protection, Accredited Coaches, Safety & Risk Management and Promoting Positive Behaviour & establishing a Strategic Development Plan for the club.

Their work was again acknowledged as recently as last month, as the club won the Newcastle Permanent Club of the Month for June as part of the Newcastle Permanent’s Community Football Awards Program.

NNSWF would like to thank Lisa Duhig and Lochinvar Rovers for all their hard work and effort in making community football a great experience for all at Lochinvar FC.
