Parents can expect an early wakeup call tomorrow morning as young players eagerly anticipate the kick-off of Season 2015 across the Hunter.
Entry level players are extra excited after receiving their free ball and shin pads courtesy of Northern NSW Football’s (NNSWF) Partner in Community Football, the Newcastle Permanent Building Society.
Almost 10,000 balls and 10,000 pairs of shin pads were distributed this week to NNSWF Member Zones and Clubs in the fourth year of the initiative.
