After weeks of relentless rain washing out every game, the sunny days of June have allowed local football to get back on track, including for the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club’s (MBVFC) U/11 girls’ team that are now getting their chance to shine on the field.

‘Despite the wet weather our girls remained incredibly patient and have kept their spirits high. Their determination and hard work has truly paid off as they have been playing their hearts out,’ MBVFC Miniroos manager Rulan Cadiogan said

‘Each one of them put in an incredible effort, showing fantastic teamwork, skill, and sportsmanship. 

‘We’re so proud of how well they played and the patience they’ve shown throughout the season so far. Here’s to more games and sunny days ahead.’
