BY ALEX TIGANI
The countdown is on for Luc and Matthew Bates.
Last week the Scone Mustangs were selected to represent the Northern NSW male team at the inaugural NAIDOC Cup to be held at Lake Macquarie on Wednesday, July 6.
The NAIDOC Cup is an important part of the Northern NSW Football’s plan to increase opportunities for First Nations coaches and footballers.
“The NAIDOC Cup together with the RTC Group NNSWF Talented Indigenous Scholarships are about connecting with our region’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage,” NNSWF CEO David Eland said.
“We want more football opportunities for First Nations communities and this is a chance to identify and showcase the next generation of coaches and players.”
The event is in partnership with Football NSW and driven by NNSWF’s Indigenous Reference Group.
