Soccer: Belmont juniors to get half-time run out at World Cup qualifier

AN excited group of youngsters from the Belmont Junior Soccer Club were chosen to play a half-time game at the international soccer match between Australia and Iraq at Perth Oval last Thursday.

The club was selected out of hundreds of other clubs to have two five-a-side teams play at half time in front of the 17,000-plus crowd. President Martin Connolly said 10 players aged 8-11 years had been selected for the occasion.

“It was a fantastic night and an unforgettable experience for the kids,” he said.

Mr Connolly said he was happy for the parents and the children and thanked Football West for the opportunity.
