Golden Oldies to show skills
FOR the second year in a row, the old boys of Sawtell and Woolgoolga will have a chance to wind back the years in a golden oldies match on Sunday.
Rex Hardaker Oval is set to see some of the former greats of each club take to the field even though there might be some extra kilo's or a receding hairline.
Junior vice-president of the Panthers John Wotherspoon took to the field last year and said that the game was a tremendous success.
"I tell you, someone actually mentioned the other day to me that last year there was 100 spectators at the ground at 11 o'clock in morning to watch the old boys game," he said.
"There's a good interclub relationship between the two clubs and I think that's important.
"Especially with what's going on around the group at the moment, it should happen with all clubs."
Wotherspoon is hoping that next Sunday's clash will have the same social atmosphere that everyone enjoyed last year and the compulsory sip of port before, during and after the match will be instituted again.
"We went through six bottles of port last year," Wotherspoon added.
"It's for over 35s and it's all in good fun."
Players interested in taking part should contact either Wotherspoon on 6653 2164 or Woolgoolga's Chris Hughes on 6654 7041.
