Finals build on-court excitement

THE Golden South JAGS Netball team has created history by winning its way through to the finals of the Holden Cruz Cup.

The JAGS defeated the Wildcats in the minor semi-final played last Wednesday and will now take on the Brisbane Cougars.

The final will be played tomorrow at 7.30pm at Brisbane State High School.

The trip is about 50 minutes from Tweed.This game will be a high quality event and JAGS president Jennyne Dillon has requested that anyone who can carpool to get along and support the girls win their way to the grand final.

It would be great to see a sea of royal blue and canary yellow to cheer on the JAGS in Brisbane.

  • MURWILLUMBAH would like to remind all Netter players that games will be played up to September 19 and those Netter players who turn 11 or 12 will have a chance to play against the current 11/12s this Saturday, September 12.

President Beth Matsuto would like to thank all who volunteered at Speed On Tweed for the Murwillumbah Association and would like those who did volunteer to send her a short email on what they did and whether it would be an option to pursue again next year.

  • THE Murwillumbah finals series produced some exciting netball on Saturday. It is great to see how players' skill level has improved throughout the season.

The finals will be played this Saturday, September 12 with the grand finals on September 19.

Not only will spectators have the opportunity to see a great game, but they can enjoy the festivities on the day which will include a jumping castle, face painting, an all-day barbecue and skills competitions throughout the day.

Players and parents need to book in for the presentation evening (dinner, disco and presentations) to be held on September 19 from 6pm at the Condong Bowling Club. We need numbers by this Saturday.

Players 12 and under are $5, non-players in this age group are $7, players, coaches, umpires and committee members over 12 are $10, all other people over 12 are $15. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

  • MURWILLUMBAH will be looking to conduct twilight Thursday night competition for players over 14 and any unisex teams (which would consist of a maximum of three men on the field at any time).

Currently registered players could play for a minimum amount and new players would pay that minimum amount + insurance ($55).

Any team registering would need to register an umpire at the same time or registration would not be accepted. To get this competition running volunteers would be required to run the night.

Anyone interested in playing can register at the clubhouse or online. Provided someone is found to run the comp and enough team and umpire nominations are received by September 19, the competition will commence on October 22.
