A thousand Little Demons have fun

Jack Watts

MORE THAN 1000 under nine and 10 south-east junior players played like little Demons during last weekend’s two-day Little Demons carnival, played at Narre Warren’s Sweeney Reserve.

The two age groups were placed into pools of four teams, with the squads named after current and former Melbourne Football Club champions including former south-east junior player Tom Scully, along with club legends Ron Barassi, Jim Stynes and Garry Lyon.

The format allowed teams to participate in a fun environment that encouraged skill development, and was thoroughly enjoyed by both players and spectators.

Each player who participated on the day received an MFC show bag, Ross Faulkner football, Goulburn Valley radio, Goulburn Valley drink, and bumper sticker.

The Narre Warren Junior Football Club did an excellent job of hosting the day, ensuring that everyone was well fed, while it provided an activity room for the kids, which included favourites such as face painting and making balloon animals.

All the action was professionally photographed by the league photography partner, Kangaroo Photos, and these photos will be available to purchase online shortly.

Melbourne Football Club players Tom Scully and James Strauss attended on Saturday, while Jack Watts, Stefan Martin, Matthew Bate and Lynden Dunn signed autographs on Sunday.

Congratulations to the players, officials, volunteers and spectators who made the two days a great success.

Many thanks also to the Narre Warren Junior Football Club, Garrleigh Trophy Centre, Melbourne Football Club, McDonalds, Coke and Ross Faulkner for their support of the Little Demons Day.
