much appreciated.

DURING the school holidays, Sass Strikers ran a great coaching clinic through the Josh Rose Football Academy. Everyone who attended enjoyed three great days of football, fun and learning new skills. At the end of the clinic, Josh Rose himself presented two young upcoming stars, Nicholas Peters and Kobi Mules, with a shirt and soccer ball for their 110 per cent effort and great attitude throughout the clinic. Well done boys and keep up the great work. Nicholas Peters and Kobi Mules are pictured with Josh Rose.

Thumbs Up and congratulations to Lillimar for the fantastic window display welcoming the Red Hatters to Dubbo. Your efforts were much appreciated.
