By ANITA FURJANIC

THE Glenorchy Knights Football (Soccer) Club is doing great things in the Northern Suburbs to promote the game of soccer and creating opportunities for junior players.

One initiative of the Glenorchy Knights this season was to invite junior clubs in the northern suburbs to attend PS4 Victory League games at their KGV home games in Glenorchy.

Junior players from Brighton Junior Soccer Club and Derwent United Football Club recently attended these games. The players walked side by side with senior players onto the pitch and stood with them while they were introduced to supporters attending the game. They were also allowed to act as ball retrievers during the game and get to play a small-sided game on the ground at half time in front of supporters.

The U12 SAP Team players are from back, left, coach Daniel Harris with Dylan Midson-Laredo, Lucas Dzelalija, Lachlan Nilsson, Joe McShane, Peter Swan, Josh Honig, Blake O’Brien, Harrison Huigsloot, Brayden Butler, Jayden Nube, Ziggy Gow-Webb.
