Borroloola v Robinson River JMF Football Friendly

Borroloola v Robinson River friendly match August 2020

On Saturday, 30 August we witnessed some great footy in a friendly match between the JMF hubs of Borroloola and Robinson River.

It was a great game that showcased the amazing talent and efforts of the young Indigenous football players. The game was a great way to get the remote communities to work and play together developing crucial teamwork, motor and resilience skills .

The Borroloola team travelled the three hours to Robinson River for the match. While the two communities are not far apart, the dirt roads make the journey arduous. These communities are situated in the Gulf of Carpentaria in NT and are the most remote in Australia.

John Moriarty Football regularly facilitates friendly football matches between its Indigenous communities, so that the children have the opportunity to play proper games with full teams. These games are an effective way to practice the skills that the children learn in their training sessions while enjoying a fun game of teamwork and determination.
