It’s been a decade sinceSussexPanthers third grade have formed a team andjust eight weeks ago these men started talking about getting it together and training.
The previousweekthey travelled to Gerringong for their first game, a convoy of spectators fromSussexfollowed to cheer on their boys. It was a 22-all draw, a great start to their season.
Saturday’swin against last season’s premiers was well deserved.
“These men trained their way to this win, their defence won them the game,”coach Steve Bettington said.
