The Manilla Hornets were back on the field on Saturday 1st May for the first round of Tamworth MiniRoos football.
There were smiles all round as our six junior teams put their skills to the test in what was for many their first ever competition game.
This year is the first year Tamworth Football has introduced a designated U5 team (previously the U5 players have played up with the U6 teams) and they definitely had a blast!! It’s wonderful to see so many new faces in our club for this season.
Thank you to our coaches and field coaches for giving their time and energy to support our ‘dressed in red’ Hornets in their games. Great fun was had by all if the smiles in the photographs were any indication!
As usual we will be featuring one or two squads each week in our reports so stay tuned!
The Manilla Hornets Men’s 3rd Grade Team played an enjoyable game against Tamworth FC last night on Johnson Field. They won 3-1. Well done to Caleb Mcilveen , Sam Saunders, Jacob Hawley and all other players who helped set these goals up. Well done fellas, great start to the season.
