Woodenbong among the best

WOODENBONG Central School's proud history in touch football continues with its success at the NSW boys Touch Football 9/10 regional competition in Ballina.

Woodenbong CS defeated Tweed High 7-2 in the final.

The team ? Craig Bundock, Jordan Green, Nathan Duncan, Josiah Williams, Peter Williams, Jared Smith, Daniel Stubbings, Sean Riley, Mark Allen, Timothy Green and Marley Williams ? have been invited to play at Wollongong to showcase their skills in the finals on May 18.

Their success follows on from winning the small schools' competition last year and placing 10th in the 7/8 NSW Touch competition in 2005.

Three of the boys ? Jordan Green, Peter Williams and Timothy Green ? represented the North Coast side in 2006, and Phillip Bundock made the NSW side.

The school's touch tradition is strong and it endeavours to allow students to develop these skills as the benefits are many, varied and long lasting.

Woodenbong Central School is seeking sponsorship to aid with the costs so please contact the school on 6635 1281 if you are in a position to help out.

The raw, natural talent at the school is evident when the boys compete against schools which have more students in a one-year group than theirs has in total students. They are great competitors and the school is justifiably proud of them.
