Brothers Social Touch Football is celebrating 25 years with another exciting season set to kick off next month.

President Andrew McCracken urged locals to get a team together and attend sign-on night later this month (Monday, 24 January) at the back of the Brothers Sports Club from 6pm.

“I’m looking forward to another strong year and encourage touch footy players of all abilities to get a team together and join the comp,” Andrew said.

“Our Monday night social comp caters for all levels and is a fantastic way to maintain health and fitness in a fun and friendly environment.

“The games are played within three time slots (first game kicks off at 6 pm and the last at 7.40 pm) and consist of two 20-minute halves and a five-minute break at halftime.

“Players range in age from 13 years to 70 years and teams are generally made up of family, groups of friends and work colleagues.

“We also offer three divisions – Mixed, Mens Open and Open 35+ – and the size of our competition means players of similar levels are playing against each other.”

Andrew said he was expecting more than 40 teams and over 400 players to register, and encouraged teams to get in quick to secure their spot and avoid missing out.

“Our sought-after competition has been running in this community for 25 years – we pride ourselves on providing an affordable option to exercise and socialise,” he said.

“Team fees for the season are $400 if paid in full on sign-on night which works out to be about $34 a player if a you recruit a team of 12. Team fees are $450 after sign-on night.

The season runs from February to June – no games are played over the Easter break.

Sign-on will be held at the back of the Brothers Club on Monday, 24 January between 6 pm to 7 pm.

The first round of games will kick off on Monday, 7 February.

Anyone interested in refereeing and earning some extra cash is also encouraged to attend.

Key dates for the season:

• Sign-on night – 24 January

• Competition kicks off – 7 February
