Lidcombe Waratahs in the Local Newspaper – “Invite to have a ball”
PLAYERS of all ages and every background are welcome at the Lidcombe Waratah Junior Soccer Club. Fielding both mens and womens teams as well as girls and boys teams, the clubs have players ranging in age from five through to their oldest player at 61.
“Our women’s team has players from many different backgrounds and it doesn’t really matter where you come from as long as you are prepared to give it a go on the field. I’m a 42-year-old mum who still plays, and for me it’s about going out and being active but it’s also about community and teamwork. For kids, soccer teaches them not only about being active but also learning to play together and relying on their teammates to achieve results” – Club Secretary, Mel Rennie
