Sign-on morning tomorrow at Yaralla Mariners

SOCCER: Youngsters have the chance to join a club on the move.

Yaralla Mariners Junior Football Club have an open day today in two time slots to cater for different age groups.

The club's new technical development officer Mark Delaney said the day would start at 8.30am for children aged 6-9.

The second session is from 10am-noon for those aged 10-15 years.

"We have lots of opportunities for all types of players, both boys and girls," Delaney said.

The clinic will include games, technical exercises, competitions, ball mastery and small-sided matches, all delivered in a fun, safe and friendly football environment.

It has been a productive off-season at the club and Delaney said infrastructure at the Mariners Fields had improved.

"We have had an extremely busy off-season with the upgrade and installation of our new sprinkler system, which covers all the training areas and pitches at the ground," he said.

"We have also just received our LED floodlights, which will vastly improve the lighting levels for both our academy training nights and any night-time fixtures.

"We will always be looking to raise our standards, which in turn will benefit all the players and families that are part of our club."
