Juniors have a ball in Queensland

Glen Innes junior soccer teams took the field against southern Queensland teams with some impressive performances. 

Representative teams from five and six-years-old through to under 12s went to the carnival in Warwick. 

Glen Innes District Football’s Chris Wilson said it was a success for local sides. 

“There was a few wins across all of them, a few losses obviously,” he said. 

“The day went really well.

“All the kids had a good day up there.

“All in all, I don't think any teams had wins across the board, we all had a few losses.

“Thanks to all the parents and kids for travelling and thanks for another great day. 

“Thanks to the committee and for Warwick for hosting the carnival.”

It was a busy day for the carnival’s participants with 68 teams, including from Dalby, Stanthorpe and Tenterfield, entered. 

Games started at 8am and were still going at 3.30pm. 

The Glen Innes teams will next take aim at a carnival in Armidale on August 6. 

Wilson said they will be up against teams from all over the New England. 

“We are taking all the same teams,” he said. 

“Inverell, us, I think there's a few teams from Tamworth and Moree.
