Fun at football festival
Rueben McClaren, of Ruawai Primary School, gave his all at the Dargaville Primary School’s Football Festival held on the Dargaville High School fields last week. The annual event is organised in conjunction with the Northern Football Federation and Sport Northland and sponsored by Silver Fern Farms. Seventy-four teams participated from Dargaville Primary School, Ruawai, St Joseph’s, Arapohue and Tangiteroria. “It’s all about having fun and trying out the sport. I would imagine a lot of these children would not have played this sport before. This gives them the opportunity to try it out in a relaxed and non-competitive environment,” said Northland Football Development manager, Dave Alabaster.
