Alkimos Tigers Touch to host come and try day

Alkimos Tigers Touch will host a come and try day on September 30 before the competition kicks off on October 7.

President Lynette Wikaira said this would be the club’s first season of touch football, giving the juniors something to play during summer.

“I can see this will help the younger ones that are currently in sport to keep up there fitness,” she said.

“Touch football complements rugby league whilst waiting for the next season to come round for their winter sports.”

She said she expected “many kids from afar” to join the sport.
