Northern boys and girls representative teams will challengeSouthern TasmanianJunior Football League sides at Youngtown Oval on Sunday.

Deb Reynolds will direct the Northerngirls and describedthe occasion as “significant”.

“It’s a good opportunity for girls football to be recognised in Tasmania,” Reynolds said.

“It’s important for people to recognise women’s footy…it’s in its infancy stage and exciting for the girls to be able to do something that is not mainstream.

“This shows them that there is an option if they want to take football further and I hope theylearn something from the game.”

Reynolds, who will be helped by Brett Sweeny, said the focuswould be on effort.

“It’s about exposure andlearning that thetempo of the game will be a lot different to club level,” she said.

“If they can give 100 per cent effort and leave nothing on the ground thenthat is all you can ask from them.

Daryl Griffiths will coach the boys withWayne Riethoff assistance, while Josh Harris andCharlie Griffiths have been named captain and vice-captain respectively.

The players are aged between 15 to 17 years.

NTJFA director Emma Anderson said it would be great to see spectatorsturn up in support and barrick for the North.
