Club president Craig Sadler said: ‘With only five teams eligible to play finals in their age group, it is a great achievement to have two teams in semi-finals this weekend.

‘Year 8 Hornets will be playing at home (Windermere Oval) in a first semi-final against Edgewater and our Year 9 Raptors will be away in a second semi-final against Quinns District.’

Mr Sadler said it would make Father’s Day a special one for those dads who could watch their sons play this Sunday and a busy one for the hard-working JKJFC committee.

The club will also host a cross-district final for Whitfords Junior Football Club in the Year 12 age group. ‘While we are very excited about getting behind our teams this weekend we are also preparing for our presentation-fun days at the club over the next two weekends for those teams who don’t have finals in their age group,’ Mr Sadler said.

‘We have 730 players aged between five and 12 who will enjoy the fun and activities as they receive their trophies and team photos.’

He said with 850 players from Auskick to Year 10, Joondalup Kinross was the largest junior football club in the West Perth district. ‘It all culminates for us on September 13 at our Night of Champions, which includes our vote counts for our open teams,’ he said.
