Mid Canterbury’s youngest female footballers will have their first taste of an all-girl tournament when they head off to play in the Alan Fraser Memorial Tournament at the weekend.
Eleven girls, all under 11, will represent the district in games against Parklands, Waimakariri Grey, Waimakariri Black and Ferrymead Bays.
The seven-a-side matches will be played on junior pitches and over two 15 minute halves and the tournament will feature rolling substitutions.
The Mid Canterbury footballers play locally in mixed games and will be coached by Jason Mattson.
Games will be played at Kendall Park on July 16-17.
