Wanna play footie?

Busselton Masters Football Club is looking for players aged 35-years or older to join their club and help “rest the weary legs of senior players”.

Coach and player Kim Sparks said the team trained on Friday nights at 5.30pm at the Busselton Football Club and played every two or three weeks in a 10-team competition which included Margaret River, Dunsborough and Bunbury.

“Our motto is ‘Kicks for Kicks Sake’, and we enjoy the social side of things as much as the playing,” Sparks said.

“The football ability stories that get told after each game are worse than that of a bragging fisherman describing the monster fish that got away, and if you believe in fairy tales and can embellish situations you will fit in to our club just fine.”

Sparks said the rules of the game precluded any rough tackling, leaping into opponents, shirt fronts or harsh bumping.

“The games are played in very good spirits and friendly spirit, whilst at the same time the competitive nature of every passage of play is very evident,” he said.

“There are a number of ex-AFL and WAFL players in the competition so the standard is good, there are also a lot of players who have played very little footy in their day, and those chaps get as many kicks and as much enjoyment as the more experienced players.”

The season kicks off this Sunday with a game against the Leschenault Crabs at Sir Stewart Bovell Park from 2pm.

Anyone interested in joining can phone Sparks on 0403 322 878.
