Game sets the tone before finals

FOOTBALL Gympie is extracting maximum value from what remains of an exceptional season when the club hosts a friendly match featuring the Tasmanian Institute of Sport Under-19 squad this evening.

Club secretary Pam Tindall said the Tasmanian youth squad would line up against a Gympie Under-19 team.

“Dean May was once the regional Wide Bay coaching director but now holds a similar position in Tasmania,” she said.

“He had brought the team up to Queensland and approached us with the idea of playing the friendly.”

Tindall said the game, although a friendly hit-out, would be important for the Gympie boys.

“We are in the process of looking ahead to selecting a Gympie youth Fire team for next season and this game is a chance for the players to starting showing us what they are capable of,” she said.

Kick-off for the friendly match is at 6pm on Field 1 at the One Mile Ovals and admission is free.
