A large group of SKOB Saints had a great trip to the Nothern Territory playing two matches of football with the Wanderers and Darwin Buffaloes in the NTFL. The first game was played in oppressive heat and the second game played in torrential rain. Such a memorable experience for all players involved with high quality football and so many great friendships made.
A highlight of the trip was the day spent at Barunga, a small Aboriginal community about 80 km south east of Katherine with a population of around 350. Girls were invited to share in bush tucker(kangaroo tail) and learn about culture on country. The football match with the Arnhem Crows Football Club was a magical cultural experience that brought everyone together. Saints are looking forward to members of the Barunga community coming down to Melbourne and playing with the girls during our Indigenous Round.
We look forward to continuing to grow this relationship with the Wanderers, Darwin Buffaloes and the Barunga community for many years to come. Well done to the 14 girls who represented the SKOBFC so proudly. The impact they made was enormous and the experience is one they will cherish for a lifetime.
