Bingera juniors to get a new strip

A NEW strip awaits all of Bingera’s under-6s to under-10s when they take the field this year, after the club received a welcome boost from Bundaberg Radiology.

The club will use a grant from the firm to build junior numbers and decrease the steep registration costs for the rest of the club.

Bingera president Debbie Caldwell was absolutely thrilled with Bundaberg Radiology’s level of commitment.

“We need to start building from the juniors again. It’s no point just having good senior sides because the club will just fall apart without juniors coming through,” she said.

Both the men’s and women’s top sides won their respective premierships last season, and both coaches are confident they can repeat the performance.

But for now, all eyes are on the next crop coming through.

Sign-on for juniors is tomorrow from 10am to 2pm, at the Bingera Football Club, Queen Street.

Under-6 to under-10 players receive a backpack, socks and bucket hat when they register, while under-11s to under-16s get a cap and socks.

Caldwell said more players would be sought to coach the juniors this year.

“We have lots of good players that would be great with the kids. Every side has a coach and if we get our players, it keeps it in the club, which is even better,” she said.
