New portable goal posts will help Launceston City Football Club host a friendly juniors competition with other clubs from around the state.
The new goal posts were purchased after the club received a $5000 grant from the Meander Valley Council and will help improve the team’s training facilities.
LCFC chairman Luigi Gugliotti said they had about six senior men’s and women’s teams and 35 junior teams.

He said the goals would help more people be able to train without damaging the areas around goals.
But, the new portable goals are just part of what Mr Gugliotti wants to do to improve the club.
Mr Gugliotti has a bold vision for new club change rooms which will make life easier for all members.
“At present we’ve got an ageing change room facility … back in the day it was acceptable, we only had one team or two teams, as we’ve progressed six and seven senior teams use that facility,” he said.
“So we are hoping to get a grant that might be able to get us some new change rooms which will house all our men’s and women’s … and then our juniors can use the facilities too.”
Meander Valley mayor Wayne Johnston said it was great to be able to support a local sporting club.
He said clubs all across the municipality are ambitiously striving to improve the community.
“We’ll keep doing what we can for clubs across the municipality,” Cr Johnston said.
Cr Johnston said sporting clubs play an important role in helping to keep children active.
“We need young people out and about, especially in the coronavirus situation, we need people to continue to keep active,” he said.
