Summer Six a Side season end

By Prue Hartley

New Farm United Football Club’s Summer Six a Side season has wrapped up on November 30 after giving new and existing club members a season full of fun and friendly competition down at the New Farm Park fields.

Genesiso Falcomer, who helps run the Summer Six a Side competition, said that the nine-week season has been great not only for the players but also for the club.

“The afternoon into the late evening is a lovely time of the day to be playing sport and it has been a great opportunity for people to get involved in the community,” Mr Falcomer said.

“We had double the number of people sign up this season as compared to last with 74 total teams. We had 42 teams in total last year, but this season we had 42 teams just for the juniors alone and an additional 32 adult teams,” he said.

Kate George, one of the mothers at the club, said that she liked the friendship aspect of it.

“My son made a group of friends through playing sport at New Farm and since the rugby season ended, he and his friend group got involved in Summer Six a Side and continue to play sport together,” Ms George said.

New Farm Park was bursting with energy on Thursday afternoons as goals were kicked and friendships formed

Mr Falcomer said that if you’re interested in playing next season, you will have to get in early.

“Every single field here is full. We physically cannot fit any more teams than what we have now. There is a very high demand to play soccer at New Farm and it’s not going down,” he said.

Each team contributes to a group fee for the nine weeks of soccer. Under 6s and 7s teams pay $300, under 8s to under 16s pay $400 and the adult teams pay $800.
