Cherry merch up for grabs with touch comp

TOUCH FOOTBALL: Help design a new logo for Roma's junior touch and you could score some merchandise signed by Olympic gold medallist Emilee Cherry.

Roma Junior Touch Committee member Meryl Eddie said they had put the call out for the community to come up with a design for their representative team.

"So we take some Roma and district teams away to various competitions and we are looking for a name for our Roma representative team,” she said.

"The prize is some Emilee Cherry signed merchandise.”

This is the second year the Roma junior touch competition has been running, and Eddie said it had grown from strength to strength.

"We have a lot more teams this year, I think we had 12 last year and now we have 18,” she said.

"It's fantastic and we are generating more and more interest and have both boys and girls teams and mixed teams.”

Eddie said they have also had a lot of players coming from neighbouring towns to join in on the competition.

"So last year we had players from Surat and Wallumbilla and this year we also have some from Injune,” she said.

"They are coming far and wide to participate which is awesome.”

The Roma junior touch games run every every Monday from 4.15pm. If you would like to make an entry to design the team's logo, go to their Facebook site at www.facebook.com/ RomaJuniorTouch and send them a message.
