Coffs wins football festival
COFFS Harbour has won the girls competition at the inaugural Northern NSW Indigenous Football Festival at Pacific Bay Resort.
Winning 2-0 in the final against Callaghan, the Coffs side will represent the region at the Australian indigenous Football festival to be held in Alice spring later this year.
The one day competition saw almost 80 Indigenous boys and girls from Newcastle, Kempsey, Moree and Coffs Harbour participate as part of nine regional teams.
The festival was opened by an Indigenous Dance Group followed by a full day of football fixtures.
In the boys final Callaghan went down 7-0 to Moree.
The NNSWF Indigenous Football Festival will become an annual event for schools within Northern NSW with a view to growing the number of participants in future years.
