McDonald's supports local players

McDONALD’S has once again underlined their support of local football talent by granting scholarships to six players yesterday.

Local owner Dave Munro was on hand at the BCU International Stadium to present $500 cheques to junior players who have been shining on the pitch lately.

Jessie Gentle, Elizabeth Tonks, Jasmin Coutenay, Je Jacobs, Riley Dillon and Harry Atherton were thrilled to receive the scholarships yesterday as were the parents of the talented sextet.

The money is to help cover the enormous costs that families incur from travelling to see the round ball stars reach for their dreams.

A perfect example of these costs came earlier in the year when Boambee goalkeeper Je Jacobs was selected in a representative team that played in Japan.

McDonald’s has issued six scholarships in each of the seven zones that fall under the Northern New South Wales banner bringing their support to more than $20,000 per year.
