Southern Tablelands FA transcended back in time on Saturday 17th August as they hosted their very own ‘Retro Round’ at the Cookbundoon Sports Grounds.
Originally scheduled for Saturday 10th August, the event had to take place a week after due to heavy rain and snow.
The new date was still met by a healthy contingent of participants who thoroughly enjoyed what was a memorable day for all involved.
“Old shirts, old socks and plenty of fond memories was the order of the day as Southern Tableland FA held their retro round week to raise funds for female facilities,” said STFA Director – Projects Coordinator Craig Norris.
“The STFA club all came together on the 17th of August to Host Retro Round at the Cookbundoon Sports Grounds.
“The day had plenty of activities and was built around old kits from each club’s history, there were some great and to be fair not so great looking kits dragged out of storage and got a run on the pitch one more time as well as a couple of new kits in the same style as the old ones.
“We had some great history shared in the weeks leading into the round, as moment built so did the sharing of old photos and history.
“The ALDI MiniRoos got into the spirit of the event by wearing odd socks.
“Most importantly, the STFA has raised over $8500 that will go towards build change room for our ever growing female players.”
Football NSW supported the event by providing the ALDI MiniRoos Inflatable Shooting Target a long with plenty of giveaways for the participants of the day.
ALDI MiniRoos Game Development Officer Kevin Guardado Amaya took part in the festivities and was invited to the STFA ‘Retro Round’ dinner that was held the weekend before at the Goulburn Workers Club – more incredibly the night raised $4,000 which was an amazing achievement for the Association.
