GOING weeks at a time without a game due to a shrinking Group 2 under-18s competition, Coffs Comets Under-18s are desperate to get on the field.

Coached by former Comets player Brenden Pellegrino, Coffs Harbour is calling on all old boys of the club to strap on the boots one more time for an exhibition match this Saturday at Advocate Park.

Pellegrino stated he needed to get his players playing as often as possible in the face of sporadic game scheduling.

"We can go a fortnight to over a month without a game because there aren't enough teams in the competition," Pellegrino said.

Without back to back games it is hard to develop any consistency which is really important.

"Saturday is all about giving the boys a run but also testing them against different opposition."

With six former players already signed on for the one off clash Pellegrino is confident he will be able to put together a quality team of the Comets heroes of yesteryear.

"I have only done a quick call around and everyone I have spoken too is really keen," he said.

"I still need more players so any former player of the club or the local area who is willing to come out of footy retirement to help these kids out should give me a call.

"It should be a fun afternoon for everyone involved."

Anyone interested should phone Brenden Pellegrino on 0401 420 044.
