Valentine shows their love for football

September 5th, 2017

Valentine Football Club partnered with Belmont Fire station for their annual end of season gala day to help raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) with a massive turnout from players and families.

The gala day was held for all ALDI MiniRoos teams from under 6 to under 11 in one of the biggest gala days in Northern NSW. The day saw over 800 players representing 22 clubs from Macquarie, Newcastle and Hunter Valley football.

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) ALDI MiniRoos Football Development Officer Tom Oldaker was on hand to add to the gala day fun by taking along the ALDI MiniRoos inflatable shooting target and providing free fruit, sunscreen and ALDI sample bags for the players, along with prize giveaways courtesy of NNSWF Official Partner in Community Football, Newcastle Permanent.

“Gala days such as this one provide players with more opportunities to play football,” Oldaker said.

“The more touches of the ball players get the more they develop which is why gala days are so important,” Oldaker concluded.

The day was a massive success raising $3,740 for vital MND research at the Macquarie University MND Research Centre.

NNSWF would like to thank Michelle Preston-Poole and Valentine Football Club for providing all involved with a great football experience.
