The Metro Far South teams were champions in two age groups: the under 13s who won in Griffith, and the under-14 team who won in Mudgee.

Under-13s’ coach Allan Jones said his team had displayed a high level of football skill and technique over the five-day tournament.

“It was one of the best squads I have coached at the state titles,” Jones said.

“We are all very proud of the high quality of football we played. Every player contributed to the overall team success.”

Metro Far South’s Marcus Bimbilovski won the Golden Boot award at the titles.

Under-14s Metro Far South coach Stuart Blake said the weather was good in Mudgee but the football played by this team was even better.

“It is always pleasing to win a football game or a tournament, but always more satisfying to win by playing good possession football,” Blake said.

“The boys played the best possession style of football I have seen from a team so young.

“Their parents should be proud of their sons.”

Under-13s Metro Far South:

Dean Saverino, Mitchell Ward, David Watson, Matthew Sutton, Marcus Bimbilovski, Jaden Casella, Jordyn Della Vedova, Jacob Gjorsevski, Jack Hooper, Joshua Johnson, Charlie Jones, Luke Jones, Joshua Keremelevski, Kayne Kotevski, Jake Levy, Jordan Lewis; coach Allan Jones and manager John Geary.

WOOLWORTHS North Orange manager Tony Downing knows positive customer feedback is vital for a store’s success.
Nanjing Night Net

However, even he could not have predicted his staff’s excellent customer service would be a reason why his supermarket was named the best Woolworths in NSW and ACT.

When selecting its top shop, Woolworths management considered factors such as customer satisfaction, community and charity involvement and staff morale.

Mr Downing says his staff take customer feedback, good or bad, seriously.

“We strive to do well, but if someone has a complaint then we react to that,” he said.

“The good thing is that customers also tell you when you’re doing a good job.”

Mr Downing said the store’s number one rating out of 257 stores in NSW and ACT had proved a boost for staff morale.

“We’re a new store, so for us to get recognised by our peers … I couldn’t be prouder,” he said.

The store’s strong relationship with community organisations and charities also impressed Woolworths’ management.

Despite having only been open for 18 months the store has already raised thousands of dollars for various charities and sponsored Ronald McDonald House.

It also supports Bowen Public School by supplying it with stationery, fruit and vegetables.

Mr Downing said the store’s location, plentiful parking, and specialty stores within the North Orange Shopping Centre helped make the store a hit.

“I think we’ve got a very good package here,” he said.

Mr Downing has only worked for Woolworths for three years, firstly in Sydney and then Orange, but could not imagine working anywhere else.

“I want to stay here in Orange forever,” he said.

“The town’s great, the restaurant scene is great and the people of Orange are great.”

NUKARNI Football Club’s Matt Crisafio and Kane Swarts finally shaved off their big, bushy beards after growing it all year to raise money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

The big shave took place after Nukarni’s home game on Sunday, August 4, and the boys raised more than $6200 for the RFDS – an impressive feat.

Initially, Crisafio and Swarts had hoped to raise about $2000, so they were overwhelmed with the support they received.

They wished to thank everyone who dug deep to donate to their cause and to all the members of the community who offered their support.

MERREDIN Colts travelled to a very breezy Corrigin on Saturday for the return match for 2013.
Nanjing Night Net

Corrigin have some talented players through their 11 to 14 year age group and on their home ground with plenty of supporters were looking to shine on an overcast and windy day.

Winning the toss, Corrigin kicked off with the wind behind them but inaccuracy with 10 behinds and three goals allowed Merredin to stay in the game.

In the second quarter and use of the wind Merredin scored three goals but like Corrigin failed to capitalise on opportunities.

Corrigin kicked away in the third term to build a substantial lead and into the wind in the final term were still able to find the goals on six occasions.

Merredin made more of their chances kicking four straight goals but their inability to work the ball into the breeze was their downfall.

At the full time siren Corrigin had run out winners by 66 points bringing it to one all for the season. Play of the day was Nathan Eates’ three solid marks at full forward and his first goal in AFL football.

Eates continues to work on his game and his improvement throughout the year is pleasing.

Goal kickers for Merredin were Jordan McDonald with three, Cody Lowe with two and Nathan Eates’ first goal.

Best players were Cody Lowe, Isaac McDonald and Jordan McDonald.

Colts train on Wednesdays from 3.45pm at the Merredin Regional Community and Leisure Centre.

IT is a glitzy lifestyle for the most fabulous pair in town, Tully Barton and Zane Ellison.
Nanjing Night Net

The two 11-year-olds will jetset to Serbia in October to compete in the World Aerobics Championships after taking home gold at nationals in July.

It is their first year competing as international cadets in the 11-13 age group, and they will be the only cadet pair to represent Australia.

Over five intensive days of competition from October 13 to 18, Tully and Zane will compete in three heats in both pairs and singles divisions.

The duo hail from Newcastle Sport Aerobics in Gateshead, where they are coached by world aerobics champion Allira Bull six days per week.

They will travel to Serbia with their parents, coach and five other children from Newcastle Sport Aerobics.

Tully said she was looking forward to travelling overseas.

“I can’t wait to compete but I am nervous,” she said.

Her mother, Megan Barton, said despite this, the glam lifestyle of hairspray and costumes kept Tully’s nerves at bay.

“I found a diamante in my pants the other day,” Mrs Barton said.

“Tully likes to bling up everything, from phones to toilet roll holders.”

Aerobics world competitors Tully Barton and Zane Ellison.
