Wednesday is junior day

IF YOU ARE a young gun and love and play sport, The Observer wants to hear from you.

Each Wednesday the paper will focus its attention on Gladstone's junior sports stars.

Who knows what will happen with the extra exposure. The next Johnathan Thurston, Dayne Zorko or Tia Clair-Toomey may well be unearthed. Junior sport is an important fabric with a community and Gladstone has been a production factory in developing athletes such as Clair-Toomey who has represented Australia at Olympic level.

But this all starts at grass-roots level where the sports fields and courts are literally wall-to-wall with kids playing soccer, Aussie Rules, rugby league, basketball and netball.

The first lot of junior stories and results are on pages 37, 38 and 40.

And we want to run as many junior results as possible every Wednesday. Email your stories or sports results to sport@ gladstoneobserver.com.au
