“There’s a real energy around football in Waihi at the moment and it’s great to be part of it. We’ve had some great support from the local community, including Ged Burke of Waihi Hydraulics who sponsored a sausage sizzle for the children.
“We’ve even had help from national and international companies, including SGS New Zealand, which sponsored the costs of new portable Packagoals supplied by Wellington sports gear company Packaworld International.”
Mr James said the junior- and youth-sized Packagoals used by the programme featured a rigid, high-quality inflatable design that was safe and easy to transport and store, making them ideal for Waihi AFC’s limited storage and field space at Morgan Park while it was being redeveloped.
The junior football programme runs every Sunday from 9.00am until 10.45am, for the duration of school terms two and three. Those who wish to attend are invited to contact the programme via its Waihi AFC’s Junior Football Programme Facebook page, or attend a Sunday morning session.
