World game coming to the Wheatbelt
On Saturday, March 18 Narrogin will host the third Festival of Soccer at Thomas Hogg Oval.
Organised by St Matthew’s School assistant principal Mark Tenney, the festival will also include teams from Albany, Collie, Harvey, Geographe and Mount Barker.
“Anyone is invited. Any region, any school, we’ve got kids from Pingelly and Wagin, East Narrogin, Narrogin Primary and St Matt’s as well,” Mr Tenney said. Junior soccer clinics will be held at the oval from 11am, followed by an official match between Narrogin and Collie juniors. Seniors games will follow in the afternoon.
“There used to be a soccer club here in the 70s and 80s but unfortunately it folded,” Mr Tenney said.
This year Narrogin players will pay homage to Narrogin’s soccer past with retro orange and black uniforms thanks to the support of sponsors.
There will be a sausage sizzle at the oval, as well as inflatable games for children.
