Magpies Juniors has been very fortunate to have the continued support of Ginninderry through sponsorship of its Belconnen grassroots Auskick Rookie program – Little Legends. This program ran on Sunday afternoons for children under 7 years and was so successful that our families requested for it to be extended. Through Ginninderry’s support, Magpies Juniors was able to purchase much needed equipment to make this program even bigger and better than previous years. We hope to continue this next season.
Ginninderry also sponsored the BMFC Youth Girls program – Legendary Girls, which had four strong teams compete throughout the season. We had so many players in 2018 that we look to be able to field two sides in some age groups next year. Whilst our Under 10s Girls did not compete in finals football, their skills levels were outstanding, and we received countless reports of excellent teamwork and inclusiveness. All three other teams, Under 12s, 15s and 18s made it through to the grand finals, with 12s and 15s taking home the Cup, and the Under 18s narrowly losing by a kick in a tightly contested and highly skilled game.
The partnership between the Belconnen football clubs and Ginninderry has been a hugely successful one and we hope to continue this in the coming years. We look forward to our junior presentation afternoon at The Link on Saturday 21 October 2018.
