WITH the soccer season now over and everyone getting the cricket bat out and giving it a bit of oil, some players may still be looking for a kick of the round ball.

Summer soccer kicks off on Thursday, October 13, at 5.30pm.

Those players wishing to keep their skills and fitness up need to just turn up and sign up for a team.

Player fees, the draw and by-laws will be given out on the day and the canteen will be open selling refreshments. All you have to do is turn up and if you need more information call Robert Scott Snr on 0407 486 937.

There was a good turn-out last year and it is hoped to have the same number this year, even though we are a bit late getting the information out.

PresentationsAT the recent presentation night, held two days before the grand finals,we could not present the award for Outstanding Services to Soccer/Football,so it was done on Grand Final Day.

It was a very surprised Marulan supporter, Col Glacken, who was called up to the first level of the grandstand to receive this award.

Col Glacken has been around the Marulan Soccer Club longer than any present club members can remember.We believe Col first came to Marulan to work on Ron Brewer’s property and then became heavily involved in the Marulan Soccer Club, coaching, mentoring and most recently as the barbecue chef. I know that is not much to say about someone who has been around 30 or 40 years,but that’s the way it is with someone who just gets on with the job. Well done Col and I am sure we will be having one of your bacon and egg rolls for many years to come.

Excited winnersI HAVE been to many grand finals, but I do not think I have seen a more excited team than the All Age Women’s Division 1 Marulan side,after their 2-1 win over Stags FC.

I had the pleasure of running the presentation and when I said “the Marulan Mums and Bubs are the 2016 Champions”, the roar that went up from the players and their supporters was deafening.

The Marulan team was made up mums and a good mix of younger players with a few under 16 rep players. They always played the game with a smile and the grand final was no different.

Under 16 rep player Charlotte Cox-Barlow came off crutches at the end of last week after her semi finals injury. We wish her afullrecovery.

Marulan Club was formed in 1933 and consisted of mostly English players. The Club has had its ups and downssince, but I feel it is in good hands with teams like this.

Branch repsRHYS Flissinger, Mitchell Jones, Alex Adameitis and Jayden Grey have returned from Griffithafter playing with Southern NSW in the Under 15 State Championships. They are much the wiser for having played soccer at such a higher leveland against top Sydney teams. Southern had a nil-all result against Western and a 2-1 win over top Sydney team Met Far North.

Flissinger, the goalkeeper, pulled off some amazing saves and kept his team in some close results.

Other players Jones, Adameitis and Grey all excelled and were more than up to playing at this level.

Adameitis overcame an injury to his elbow from the local semi finals to play.

Well done, boys; the whole STFAis proud of you.

Well, that is it for On the Ball for this season as it is time to hand over to the summer sports such as cricket.

My thanks go to the Goulburn Post and Darryl Fernance for making room for my dribble during the season. Also thank you to Emily Mills from 2GN news for her reporting during the season. To you, the supporters who read the dribble and for your comments both good and bad: thank you.
