Cully’s Year of the Ram
WHAT a year it has been for the Cunnamulla Rams.
Their juniors have gone from strength to strength, at carnivals, the club celebrated its 50th anniversary and somewhere in between they still managed to play the regular season.
Players, along with their parents and club volunteers, celebrated their triumphs at presentation day on Saturday.
“This year, we had out local under-10s Zone 5 carnival, which we held here in Cunnamulla to celebrate 50 years,” Cunnamulla Rams JRLFC president John Mills said.
“We had huge crowds come from all over the place and it was a great carnival.
“We had the under-12s go to Clifton for their Zone 5 carnival the following week, and they were unreal there. We had a really good year.”
Like every community club, the Junior Rams owe their success to the team of volunteers and supporters who have worked hard to keep the kids playing footy.
“We have about 50 to 60 kids playing this year, which has been really good,” Mills said.
It has all been because of the volunteers; it is a big slog through the year with all of the travel we do, and to get the kids there to play consistently is tough.
“But we get some big help from about 27 of the local businesses too, and CACH has been a huge supporter for us with supplying the buses and helping with fundraising.
“It has been good to have everyone behind us.”
