Call for more players for new touch footy season

HERVEY Bay Touch Association has called for more players to get involved in the sport.

Their first season for 2015 wrapped up last week, with the next to start on July 20.

HBTA administrator Lesleigh Schiffke said she was keen to see more senior teams involved.

In addition to the men's and women's competitions, HBTA is pushing its mixed division. "That's usually where we get quite a few people but we'd love to get more," she said.

Mixed teams are allowed 15 players, though rules stipulate at least three women should be on the field at all times. Men's and women's teams have only 12 members.

"Mixed is a lot more social, and we have A, B and C grade competitions," she said.

Schiffke thanked the referees for their contribution to the season.

For more information on the local competition, search 'Hervey Bay Touch Association' and follow the link to their SportingPulse website.
