Mixed bag of results
There were perfect soccer playing conditions on Saturday for round two of the Deniliquin & District Soccer Club season.
It was a mixed bag of results, with some big wins, close games and a couple of draws.
It is still early in the season, but the players are already trying to find out who is on top of the ladder.
It’s too early to tell though so best focus on your skills everyone.
A reminder that training is now running 5pm Thursdays.
All A, B, C and D grade players are welcome to attend. These sessions really do improve the player’s performance, and the coaches can see that on the weekend.
We are also getting enquiries about registering.
It is not too late to register your child if they are interested.
Come along Saturday and someone from our friendly committee will be able to assist.
