THE Tathra United Football Club (TUFC) had its 2013 junior presentation and AGM last Saturday.
It was a successful 2013 for TUFC which saw three teams make it to grand finals.
The outgoing president Ken McLeod has done a sterling job in managing the club.
McLeod has been involved with the club for many years as secretary and then president.
Although McLeod is retiring as president, he will maintain an active role within the club as a player.
He’s also considering the possibility of coaching.
The club thanks McLeod for all his efforts in keeping the club running smoothly.
Tathra was able to field two under 10s teams under the guidance of coaches Alfred Oesch and Mick Clarke.
These teams play socially, but look like they will be a force to be reckoned with in the near future.
Mitch Childs bagged the golden boot award for the second year in a row and tallied up an outstanding 50 goals this season in the under 12s.
Trophies were given out to players from each year for players’ player, the coaches award, best and fairest and most improved.
The grand finals last Sunday saw the Tathra under 12s defeat Merimbula 4-2.
This is their second year undefeated.
Coach David Scott was delighted with the results and set off on holidays straight after the game feeling elated.
Although the under 14s were defeated, they put in a gutsy effort against Bega White.
Coach Clinton Smith said he was pleased the team made it the grand finals, even with a loss.
The under 16s lost to Bega 2-0, but the club congratulates the young team for its stellar effort.
Dan Katz has been coaching the boys for a number of years and is keen to keep them fit and active over the summer with his Sunday kick around.
On the grand final day Callum Weafer was awarded the Far South Coast Football Association best and fairest award in the under 16s.
The club is now looking forward to hosting its summer sixes competition again.
