Mudcrabs look good after donation of new guernseys

GLADSTONE Mudcrabs junior teams always aim to play well on the field, and this season the club will look tip-top while they kick goals.

A whole set of junior guernseys for each one of the six Mudcrabs sides has been gifted by Yaralla Sports Club.

With teams from the under seven age group right through to under 17s, the Mudcrabs are grateful for the assistance. It would take years to replace the guernseys otherwise.

"It is amazing to have that kind of backing is a huge help to get these kids playing footy," sub-junior co-ordinator of the club Sheri Hope said.

"It means a great deal to our footy community and to know the whole Gladstone community is supported."

The kids pulled the new strips on for the first time on April 5.

Supporting the kids is a big part of Yaralla's commitment to the Mudcrabs, who will wear the green and white with pride for years to come.

"It is a privilege to help out," Yaralla president Col Connors said.

"Yaralla is synonymous with sport. We have been sponsoring sport and have a long involvement with the club."

The Mudcrabs kids were just keen to be on the field trying to slot the ball through the big sticks.

"These juniors are the future of the sport," Yaralla CEO Will Schroeder said.
