Marconi Stallions FC have invited two neighbouring clubs Bossley Park and Hinchinbrook to come to Marconi Stadium on Home Game Day and play at half time of the NPL matches during this season.
The three clubs will play against each other in the Under 6/7/8-year ages, the Cup started during the NPL match against Rockdale Ilinden FC on March 13. (photos)
That day, Under 7 teams from Marconi and Bossley Park played against each other.
This Sunday during the Marconi Stallions versus Sydney United match at half time all three clubs will feature in the Under 7 age group. The Under 6 age group will play on the Main Stadium on April 17. Under 8 age group will feature on May 1 st.
Legea and Hallmark Chief Executive Officer and Technical Director Wayne Spagnol is supporting the initiative which is aimed at giving the “juniors “the opportunity to play on the Main Stadium. It is also part of the club’s plan to unite the club from the juniors right through to the NPL team.
The NPL players will be holding training sessions with the Pre SAP /junior teams throughout the season so that the young players of the future can get to know the club senior players when they train with them.
Part of the experience on game day is for the junior players to walk out with the seniors prior to their half time experience.
Initial reactions have been very good – a great experience for the young ones walking out with the seniors, the game time, and crowd support.
Markka have agreed to donate $250 worth of football equipment to each of the competing clubs.
For the two visiting clubs it is a special experience to play on the Main Stadium in front of a supportive crowd, one that they would not normally be able to enjoy.
