THE Southern hub descended on Shell Road Reserve on Sunday 1 May for a festival of soccer in the rain, wind and sun.
Over 650 young soccer players took part in the weekly MiniRoos hub with clubs Surfside, Surfcoast, Drysdale, Barwon Heads, Bellarine Sharks, Barwon and Breakwater all taking part; a great time was had by all. Surfside Waves alone boasts a record breaking number of MiniRoos players this year with a whopping 150 all up, who are the future of the club.
It was a great game with the under-15 boys A team finding a new confidence, it was great to see the boys with an excitement to play the game and a new-found ability to pass the ball where and when they needed too.
The training of all the past months (since January) has finally come together.
Pat Skuza was outstanding in his captain role today with heaps of talking and a hatrick. Perry Kottek, Lukas Janse Van Vuuren, James Potts and Noah Broomhead with their ability to close down the opposition attack.
Jasper Bromley showing how to get the ball with some strength and Agility. Damian Vodopic with his speed as always and Noah with some pretty fine accuracy.
Also was good to see Jackson Daniels using his height and positioning himself and also the support the team showed Ben Daniels after he scored a goal.
In all, good to see everyone playing as a team. Well done boys
