Big money on offer at 7-a-side soccer tournament
SOCCER: Meteors Football Club is inviting footballers who are keen on playing in the club's inaugural 7-a-side soccer tournament.
Players have until close of business on Friday to register interest for the October 13-15 carnival, which carries $2000 in prize money.
The tournament is open for senior men and women with a minimum of eight teams required in both divisions.
Juniors girls must be turning 15 this year and junior boys turning 16 to enter.
The competition will be held at Meteors headquarters on Glenlyon Rd and you don't have to be a current club member to play.
Social player registration is available through the MyFootballClub website where you can purchase a $15 social registration which will cover carnival costs.
Organiser Jean Van Vegchel said the tournament was open to players across Central Queensland.
"We're trying to host a carnival in Gladstone because normally you have to travel to Rockhampton, Mackay or even Brisbane. This is just a stepping stone to see how it goes,” she said.
Team nomination fees are $250 and forms are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the Meteors FC 7 Aside Carnival page on Facebook.
