An enthusiastic crowd turned up at Wembley Road to watch the Coolum junior touch football grand finals last week.

Players from six to 15 years of age showed skill, determination, enthusiasm and sportsmanship.

Coolum Touch spokesperson Chris Sharrock said touch football was a great team sport that had been part of the Coolum community for a quarter of a century and provided an avenue for local young people to get fit and have fun.

She said the season had unearthed many talented young players.

“Coolum Touch would like to acknowledge and thank all our wonderful volunteers, referees and coaches for a great job well done and wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas,” Ms Sharrock said

Players wishing to participate at the junior championships in February at Glasshouse should phone 0418 755 870 after 4pm or leave a massage on the clubhouse phone on 5446 4677 as soon as possible.
