Pitch in and kick Goals 4 Special Olympics

The FourFourTwo team whiteboard has been wheeled in, and a spaghetti of tactical moves is slowly being absorbed in readiness for Goals 4 Special Olympics next week.

We’ve talked a big game ahead of the July 15 charity tournament at Hensley Athletic Field, Denison St, Eastgardens.

Sixteen six-a-side teams will face-off in a bid to raise funds so that more people with an intellectual disability have the opportunity to play sport.

There’s a Law enforcement torch run at 4.45pm before kick-off at 5pm and a Special Olympics Australia v NSW Police FC showdown at 8pm.

Squads will comprise of up to 12 players, with each team playing a minimum of four games of 20 minutes each (30 minutes in the knockout stage).

So before the FFT team hobbles off at the end of the night, we’re hoping that as many people as possible dig deep and pitch in.
