South East: Limestone Coast Regional Carnival

On Saturday June 11th at Kongorong, the three major leagues in the South East zone – Mid-South Eastern Football League (MSEFL), Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Football League (KNTFL), and Western Border Football League (WBFL) – came together to compete in the 2022 Limestone Coast Regional Carnival.

The annual carnival is a highly anticipated event in the football calendar which showcases the great rivalry between the three leagues in the U15, U17.5 and senior grades.

Importantly for Glenelg Football Club, it’s a chance for club representatives like Darren Trevena (Junior Talent Manager), Kristin Jeffery (Commercial Manager) and Heath Sims (Game Development Coordinator – GFC) to view the best junior players in action and identify talent to come up through our programs and pathways, in particular the U16s and U18s, in the future.

This has already proven to be a key pathway for juniors to play at the elite level, with one recent example being Glenelg junior Oscar Adams, who was drafted to Saint Kilda in 2021.

The club was also excited to donate a GFC backpack and football gear to the award winners, as well as medals for the Team of the Carnival.

Overall it was an extremely successful day, and the club congratulates all award winners and players involved.
