Getting back on the footy field

The Maryborough AFL Masters Pumas are on the prowl for local footballers of mature age to pull on the boots for season 2019. Pictured is club president Travis Cain during the sideʼs second training session for the season.

Aged over 35 and never played footy? It’s not too late, according to the region’s most mature football club.

The Maryborough AFL Masters are challenging those who think their football career is over before it has begun to consider a late new year’s resolution for 2019.

The Pumas’ line-up in previous years has mostly been made up of former Maryborough Castlemaine District Football Netball League (MCDFNL) players, but Maryborough Masters vice president Gav McGrath said there is plenty of room for those who have not played Australian Rules Football since school or have never played the sport at all.

“If you’re one of those people who loves watching the footy on TV but there’s part of you that regrets not having had a run around yourself, you should come along to training and have a crack,” he said.
