Frosty in Fitzroy yesterday. How cold was it where you were? Anyone playing sport in the freezing – apart from the Roys Under 10s?

Junior Footy – Fitzroy Under 10-3 v Ashburton: The moon’s a balloon, again

It was Theo Harms’s turn to produce a match report for the mighty Roys Under 10-3. He considers the lunar conditions and then writes a lively account of the kids’ dominant performance especially during the last quarter when Marlo was palming to Matt like he was Simon Madden, Brad Ottens and Polly Farmer all rolled into one. [Great stuff Theo – Dad]

Frankie Donnini shows how much he loves his team by penning this epic match report from the Fitzroy Under 9-S game against Ivanhoe last Sunday. At the Almanac we encourage kids to “Love your sport, love your schoolwork”. They are learning that telling stories is fun. [These kids are great – Ed]
