Collegians to host 9 night games
FRIDAY night footy will be played at St Mark’s Oval this week when the Collegians Dragons hosts Wattles in nine grades.
Collegians secretary Glen Williamson said games would be played in each age group from under-7 to under 14.
The main game of the night will be the U16 match at 9pm.
Williamson said this was the first time all Collegians teams would play night football on the same program.
“In the past we have had three or four games at night but never the lot,” Williamson said.
“The club has attracted good numbers in all grades except the U14 team.”
While the Collegians field is the main one for Friday night football, Williamson said games would also be played on the touch and Eastern Suburbs fields.
Collegians won the U11 and U16 premierships in the Warwick and District Junior Rugby League competition last season.
Pat Gainey coached the victorious U11 side in 2009 and has gone up a year with the team for 2010.
Mark Murphy was U16 coach last season and is again at the helm of a side which has half the players from 2009 still eligible for the new season.
Competition points are tallied in age groups from U11 to U16. Scores are not recorded for the younger age groups.
Players interested in participating in the U14 team welcome to call club president Terry Dwan 0400 738 899.
