Three members of the Morrison family all scored a goal on the same weekend playing for the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club (MBVFC), who celebrated it as a ‘family hat trick’ according to club secretary Yari McGauley.

It all started with Seren Morrison (aged 13) who slotted her first goal in her first season of playing football on Friday night, May 24, in what ended being a 1–1 draw with Tintenbar East Ballina Football Club.

Her younger brother Kye (aged 11) then had his turn the following morning when he scored two goals in a close-fought game against Richmond Rovers playing at Lismore in the Miniroos U/11s league.

Later that afternoon Andy Morrison then made his contribution when he scored to help the MBVFC’s men’s fifth division side to a 3–1 victory playing at home against Ballina.

‘It was a sensational goal from outside the box,’ Yari said.

Andy said: ‘I love seeing my kids grow in team sport and have fun doing it. MBVFC is a great community club.’
