Almost 700 Wellington Shire primary school students descended upon the Godfrey Baldwin Reserve recently for the final round of Sale United Football Club’s 30th annual Twilight Soccer Tournament.

Students took to the pitch on Monday, November 27, to see out the twilight tournament.

“The club would like to thank all the team organisers, coaches, parents, and in particular the players, for embracing our tournament and supporting it in such a positive way,” Sale United Football Club said.

“Our main aim is to give all the kids in the Wellington Shire the opportunity to give football (soccer) a go.

“This year has seen our highest-ever team entries of 67 teams of kids aged four to 12 running around playing soccer on a Monday night.

“Every participant received a certificate. The champions received gold medals, and the runners-up received silver medals.”
