Junior panthers kick off 2022 season

The Gilgandra Junior Panthers have started their football and netball seasons with two carnivals over the last few weeks, firstly in Walgett and then Coolah on Saturday.

The carnival format has the children play a number of shortened games against other teams in the group 14 competition and from early observations we’re sure our teams will certainly be in the mix come finals time.

This year, the under 10, 12, and 14s are all competitive formats for football, and the under 12s is competitive for netball which will be great experience for our players.

It’s been wonderful to see the number of children registering this year, particularly in the football where we are fielding a team in under 14s, two teams each in under 12, 10, and eights and a very excited team of our future stars in under six.

We also have good numbers for netball and are able to register two teams in under six/eight, under 10, and under 12. It is disappointing that there are only three clubs playing in the junior netball competition this year however, it hasn’t dampened the girls' spirits and the committee, along with Amii Marchant and Lanie Barnes as our local netball coordinators, are determined to organise as many games as possible for the players through the season.

We have a short break now over the school holidays, however, we’re all looking forward to taking to the field and courts in a few weeks’ time in the new team uniform come round one in Coonabarabran.
