emony on Monday May 5, to recognise

A FINALS-LIKE crowd
turned out for the historic Anzac
Day encounter between Mallala
and United at Mallala on Friday,
prompting the two clubs to regis-
ter their strong interest in hosting
the same event next season.
Mallala Football Club presi-
dent, David Algar, said the gate
takings probably doubled that
of the Two Wells home game in
round one, which was a strong
crowd in its own right.
“We hope to make it an annual

The twilight start for the junior
colts football and A1 netball was
also a hit.
“The A grade probably played
in the worst of the conditions as
towards the end of the game, it
did get a little difficult to see but
it was great by the time the junior
colts came on and it was properly
dark,” Mr Algar said.
“They loved playing under
lights in front of a big crowd.
“A lot of players also got
across to see their partners play
netball. I got to see some of that
match and they also had a great
“We were extremely satis-
fied, we couldn’t have asked for
anything to go better.
“The catering held up, the kids
got into the Anzac Day competi-
tion, it was a great crowd and
everyone enjoyed themselves.
“It was a massive day for
Friday’s Anzac Day
match at Mallala to
cater for the huge
