Soccer player joins elite competition
Southern and Ettalong United soccer player Iona Snape has played in a new elite junior competition launched this month.
The Coast Cup was hosted by the Mariners with the hope it will become a major event for young players and referees.

Mariners Academy director Mr Ken Schembri said the cup had the potential to become an anchor event for the region and hopes to see it grow in the future.
Southern and Ettalong United Club president Mr Glen Balneaves said the club was proud of Iona's role with the Future Matildas.
He said she had a bright future in football ahead of her.
