SOME sports clubs seeking more players are not prepared to admit it.

That is not the case with Eastern Suburbs president Gary McEwan.

He wants more players in the under-9, U11, U12 and U13 age groups.

"We currently have a lot of U11 players backing up in U12 games," McEwan said.

All players must be registered by June 30 and McEwan wants possible new recruits to see him at training at 4.30pm on Tuesday and Thursdays or to call him on 0416 513120.

McEwan said his club wasn't the only one struggling in middle age groups.

"We have plenty of players at the top and bottom ends," he said.

"I am happy with our on-field performances and we are well represented in Chargers representative teams."

The club is also not short of sponsors with money for fence sign sponsors going into club jerseys.

Suburbs hosts preliminary finals this season.
