After nearly seven years of operating at 221 Sharp Street, the Cooma Corps Salvation Army Family Store is coming to the end of its lease, meaning it will be out of action for a time beyond the Covid-19 shut down. “People will have noticed the incredible workload volunteers and staff have done to vacate the fabulous location at the Cooma Back Creek and to make new possibilities,” Cooma Corps Officer Sandra Mortimer said. “We have worked very closely with current land owners and also had lots of help from businesses, service clubs and volunteers to help us pack up and…

This includes Target Cooma, which is scheduled to close early to mid 2021, leaving the entire Snowy Monaro region without a major department store. “The decision to transform the Target network, and particularly the very difficult decision to close some of our stores is not one that is made lightly, but one that is necessary to improve the commercial viability of the business and to support the thousands of people we employ,” a Target statement said…

Charlie Maslin’s farm art

Gunningrah farmer Charlie Maslin has been looking to inject a bit of creativity and enjoyment into these challenging times, taking his daily routine and turning it into unique “farm art”. Through an interest in drone photography, Charlie has taken standard farm work and expanded it into mesmerising works of art, using a sheep feeder as his paintbrush and his land as the canvas. “We bought a drone some years ago to use on the place, and it has had some good applications, checking water, fences, and help mustering. However, the photography aspect has been outstanding, giving such a different perspective…

Preview: The Bombala Blue Heelers had enjoyed a strong 2018 season, and for the second-year running had qualified for the Group 16 first grade grand final, this time against Bega on the Roosters’ home soil.

Should our community challenge Wesfarmers decision to close the Cooma Target Store?

Comment on Facebook 158809570852608_3170001329733402

At least challenge the full closure. Change to a KMART store so that at least there is a clothing option for kids and cheap enough for those passing through! Even a best n less would work! (Not the same parent company though so could be harder to bring to town!)

The loss of jobs is regretful, but this is a private company and it seems that locals have not been supporting the current store sufficiently to make it a viable business. There is little reason to believe that in the long term another similar store from this same company would be supported either. There appears to many other options to buy basic supplies in Cooma, including the three supermarkets and other smaller stores, although it is true that they will not cover the full range of stock that Target offered. For everything else then, online shopping is available, and reliable postal and courier services mean that most items can arrive within a few days. Finally, for those that are calling for a specific store for homewares and/or children’s clothing, an opportunity has now arisen for them to try their hands at opening such a business and making it viable. There are a number of successful business people in town that could no doubt offer excellent mentoring to get this going.

I don’t care if they close it as long as we get a Kmart. It seems absurd in a town of this size that we have three supermarkets and nowhere to buy basics. We have no toy shop. No where to buy kids clothes. Nowhere to grab a spare sheet for the bed or a jacket on a cold day. It’s a low income town and we need an affordable place to buy things without waiting ten days for regional postage. If they don’t have the space for it, close Coles and put Kmart there. We need it far more than the third supermarket.

Unfortunately the current Targetmust not be creating a return in investment. The size of the store also does not lend itself to a Kmart conversion as Kmart do not do small format stores with their margins so small they need volume to be profitable. Sad but if it was your business you would make the same business decision for your shareholders.

Target has had a bad business model for years, and this whole covid situation is just the tipping point needed to push them over the edge and start closing down stores, including one in Sydney. It’s makes sense, why keep a store running that’s losing money. It such a shame that small communities like Cooma feel it more than the big towns and cities.

I’ve lived here my whole life, and before target was fosseys of course ❤️... I used to work there with the same lady’s who have been there ever since, it’s sad to see what lie’s in store for their future should they lose their position...It’s always been the go to store for my children and myself when it comes to affordable price’s, sure it’s not as cheap as it used to be but nothing is anymore. I’d hate to see it close, as there really isn’t any other options for my 2 year old son clothes wise here... unless I make a trip to Canberra which I have been doing recently, but with working and my partner working full days everyday it leaves the weekend to go and everyone knows after a full work week all you want to do is relax. Online shopping can be great, but also can be limited in these stores and you still have a bit of waiting time. So after all these years, friendly customer service, it would be sad to see it go.

Don't think It will do much good , but wish you good luck. We are losing ours in Merimbula

The original Target is too small. and there is no where they can move to. Very disappointing.

Welcome to capitalism. Unprofitable business = no business. This isn't about community or support it's about return on investment. That doesn't make them evil it makes them a commercial organisation with shareholders that expect value. If another company thinks they can make a go of the hole in the market then they'll go for it. We can't dictate to them what they should and shouldn't be able to do. Cold truth.

Once upon a time Cooma had excellent shopping but now Target is the main store for clothes especially children’s clothes. Such a shame.

There nothing there for kids or school clothes at reasonable prices. More jobs lost and less money coming in to the town.

Where are people supposed to buy clothing for their children and themselves. This closure is ridiculous come on🤬😡😠

I don't live in Cooma,but have family living there and I know they will miss it a lot .

Comma needs a shop for kids clothing, lots of families living here please.

Perfect space for a best and less? I feel sorry for the girls who work there, what will they do for work now.

Well, They need a much larger shop to be able to become a K Mart.

Maybe contest to change to a Kmart? If they really don’t want to keep regional store open there’s probably a reason. It’s a really Wack choice to completely shut that store for cooma residents it wouldn’t be convenient at all

I buy from target on line, reliable, fast and items fit.

Don’t close Target Store as we don’t have much in Cooma

It's a half arses attempt at being a target store, but more of a best and less

Target has been closing over a long period the Qbn store closed about 18months ago

I’d prefer Target to stay rather than a Kmart

We need a IGA for clothes store franchise.

Ask the community where it leaves low income families when target closes

Maybe they might close the old store to open a new store at a better suited location. It needs to be bigger than it is a present.

They are replacing Target Country to a Kmart here in Warwick QLD I think people are happy but I thought Target Country had some nice clothes heaps better than Millers

We need to be proactive and make sure that convenience store like clothing stores are in small regional town , I can only hope that Kmart take over the space . I can remember when there were seven clothing stores in cooma . I would like to remind people not everybody as the ability to get to Canberra for shopping , When spending in the town the money stays in the town and create jobs for that town .

Thhe only store with babies & kids clothing. Loosing this will mean "where now" A very discrasful thing the Giant Westfarmers are doing= what is it they want "greed comes into mind" More jobs lost. What more can be said== Dissgrasfull ==

This is the view from Target in Bega. It will become a Kmart, so Bega will have both BigW and Kmart. Cooma with a 50% larger population will have neither. I’ll never understand corporate logic.

A bit surprising seeing as the town will increase it's population with Snowy 2.0 & newcomers will need the sort of stuff they sell. Target Cooma is only a line on Westfarmers spreadsheet & the numbers don't meet shareholder expectations. Let's face it, the retail rental model has been broken ever since the advent of online shopping. Landlords don't care. You can negatively gear empty shop space.

Found it hard to get what we needed at target but I personally think it needs to be replaced by something. Taking target away leave us nothing for kids clothing and next to nothing for adults (affordable) let alone decent linnen etc

Very regrettable but to be expected. With the significant increase in online shopping by locals for most of the fare they offer the store sales are simply not enough to sustain a viable model let alone make a profit.

Love not surprising feel sorry for staff but it was going downhill and as for those doors they were so outdated and the dressing rooms ???

But but it was said on ABC news the target country stores were going to become Kmart

They just renovated it too. Why waste your money if you're thinking of closing the store?

Nice photo but unless we have a bigger shop front they can lease ,they will be going. 😢

it will make people go to Canberra or Bega to shop and then they will do their grocery shopping while they are there

Well that’s councils fault we have no retail here I had it on good authority from a former councillor and chamber of commerce member woolies before they left the Hain Center they offered to bring bigW here but all were against it

Target was a terrible store, expensive when compared to kmart and that store in particular was tiny and had very little. You dont have clothes shops? Ever heard of op shops lol apart from that how often do u need to buy new clothes, im sure going to canberra once in a blue moon wont do any harm

Swap it out with best and less!!!

I drove from Jindabyne to Cooma to purchase something from target they didn’t have it in stock, the staff themselves told me to order it online

Cooma will be a town full of coffee shops....

Country towns are suffering as it is. Now the big wigs want to close shops down.

It's inevitable, but also an opportunity for some enterprising locals.

Probably a lot Cooma people shop in Canberra.

Old people can’t get to Canberra to shop 😥

As usual the rural area gets it in the neck.😠😠

We could put in a giant milk bar, if we had tourists stopping here.

Sales clearly not there to keep it open. Shame though...

You all know that Rivers has expanded Right? .

Comment on Facebook CENTENNIAL PARK ...

Nope not in favour sorry. If that’s what its going to look like it’s just a joke. It will stop kids climbing on the roof though. Leave it the same shape. We used to have a unique looking visitors centre when it had the granite boulders and glass but they turned that into something that looked like someone’s home so please just leave it be

Lot of negativity here. There are grants for many things. It’s not council money, it’s government money. If it isn’t used it will be lost. I think if you aren’t going to put an application in for the money (for something more worthwhile) than you should keep your opinion to yourself. Well done to the Cooma-Monaro progress association, for all the effort you’ve put in to make this happen

What a waste of money, the structure is what it is. It would be like putting an awning on the opera house. Give it a coat of paint & leave it alone, besides it hardly ever gets used.......... I've never seen a live band in it in the last 50 years.

Seriously!! Surely the council has better ideas to spend grant money on in the region other than this. Yes I agree, what a waste of money.

Looks amazing the other one has been there for years

Why? I think a retirement home in bombala would be better for the community

Should probably cough up for some water tank damage first !!

Chuck that massive shade sail over the kids park instead and keep the stage the way it is. At least that will be useful.

I’m a born and bred Cooma boy not much for politics but how many of you would like me to run for council so many things so wrong with ours to many conflicts of interest

Yes ramp I agree with shame council should’ve had them years ago what decade are you in ffs catch up your losing And leave our iconic stage the way it looks

ITS OUR COMMUNITY SO LET US VOTE. Im sure there are more important things that can be done with the money

More ratepayers money being wasted on unnecessary projects. Where is the roundabout for Sharp St/ Baron St, the upgrade for the washout facilities at saleyards?

Wast of money could be spent on much more needy things then that

So you axed the retirement home in Bombala to build a stupid stage 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Widen Cooma Creek; make it a nice body of water. Not a trickle overgrown with weeds.

Why???? How about it goes to some old pensioners waiting for a hip or knee replacement!

Looks shocking could use money for better things

Too many Karens on Councils.

Is kmart going there??

Will look great 👍🏼

Thank you to the incredible hard work of the Salvos. You provide a wonderful service to so many. Hope you are able to find a suitable location post COVID and one that doesn’t allow people to dump their rubbish at your door step.

Good Luck Sandra hope you find a premise soon! Thanks for today much appreciated

Why can’t they renew the lease? Building owners aren’t allowing them to renew it?

Sad to see go . Hopefully set up and running again soon somewhere else in town. Thanks for being there Salvation Army for community. 🤗😊

SNOWY TO HONOUR AIR CRASH VICTIMS

Snowy Hydro is planning to commemorate victims of an air crash at Polo Flat in 1976. Snowy CEO Paul Broad has advised “Snowy Hydro is deeply aware of the tragic air crash that occurred at the Polo Flat airfield in 1976.
“The pilot, Jack Howard, was an employee of the Snowy Mountains Authority (SMA) - the forerunner of today’s Snowy Hydro Ltd - and two of the other victims were children of an SMA employee.
“Snowy Hydro purchased the Polo Flat airfield site in 2019 for the purposes of constructing a concrete segment factory which will see the local manufacture of the tunnel lining segments for Snowy 2.0."

“Snowy Hydro is an icon of our community, with Snowy 2.0 already employing about 500 people, directly injecting more than $35 million into the Snowy Mountains and involving more than 100 local businesses,” Mr Barilaro said.

Do you think with all this going on that we could possibly keep Target Country, or go over to K Mart, surely they can see that with this injection into the town, that we deserve one department store.

looking beyond 1the obvious this could do so much for the region, improved health and educational services, attract a diversified demographic and improve the social fabric of the region

The destruction of the Kosciusko National Park and simply setting aside the EIS process is nothing to brag about. These jobs could have been created elsewhere and to be honest listening to the NSW Govt claiming they are doing us a favour by creating jobs after they have just destroyed them by overreacting to a pathogen is more than a little rich.

This is what our town needs now to supplement it with some Mine work we will be able to keep our kids at home

Helping to empower local communities

Charities and not-for profit groups across rural, regional and remote NSW have long been at the heart of local communities, and once again, Essential Energy is asking for the community to help decide which local organisations need a bit of ‘empowering’.
Following a successful launch in 2019, the program is back to support the local groups that are part of the fabric of their communities, such as animal rescues, community centres, sporting clubs and school P&Cs who need some extra assistance to continue offering their vital services.
Local community groups across the Essential Energy network area are being encouraged to apply for funding of up to $2,500 through Essential Energy’s Community Choices program, which launches on Thursday 30 April. Nominations are open for four weeks. Following that the community gets to vote for their preferred cause voting follows for two weeks, closing on Thursday 18 June.
“Essential Energy recognises that many communities are currently doing it tough. They’ve experienced droughts and fires and have probably been impacted by the health and economic crisis that is COVID-19. As an organisation, we’re doing what we can to support those grassroots organisations that support our communities,” said Chantelle Bramley, General Manager Strategy, Regulation and Corporate Affairs.
“Our employees live and work across regional, rural and remote NSW. We understand how important these organisations are for strong communities, and we’re proud to provide this funding and stand shoulder to shoulder with them.”
The program is open to any charity, registered not-for-profit or community group within Essential Energy’s network area and sees the public voting online for who they’d like to receive a share of the $175,000 state-wide funding pool.
The entire process, from nominating to voting, can be completed online, meaning people can participate while still complying with the current social distancing requirements.
“Thanks to Essential Energy’s funding, we were able to purchase a laptop computer and wireless printer which has increased the support we can provide to our small rural community,” said Carina Severs, Manager Eden Community Access Centre Inc.
“The funding really helped our organisation last year, with all the challenges we’re facing, we need this more than ever. We’d love to see everyone get involved this year.”
2020 nominees must be able to receive payments by electronic funds transfer (EFT), and provide photos, commentary and stories about their organisations and the work they do.
Nominations for the Community Choices Program are open until 29 May. Visit essentialenergy.com.au/choices to learn more or make a nomination.

NSW GOVERNMENT TO OPEN PUBS, CLUBS, CAFES AND RESTAURANTS TO 50 PATRONS
The NSW Government will allow pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants to have up to 50 customers, subject to a one person per four square metre rule, and with strict social distancing guidelines from 1 June.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the move was about safely bringing back thousands of jobs.
“This decision has been made with expert health advice and both businesses and patrons will be subject to strict rules and guidelines,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“All customers must be seated and no bookings of more than 10 allowed, in addition to many other conditions which must be met.”
Deputy Premier John Barilaro, Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello are heading up the Government’s roadmap for reopening the economy and have worked extensively with both the AHA and ClubsNSW.
“This is a game-changer right now, as we continue to deal with the aftermath of the devastating bushfires, continued drought and COVID-19, it’s important for people to find a way to enjoy themselves and take a break from the daily pressures they are facing,” Mr Barilaro said.
“A morale boost and the additional economic stimulus provided by pubs and clubs is what our communities need and I look forward to enjoying a beer in the bush with locals very soon.”
NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the Government was moving to swiftly and
safely get businesses back in business and people back to work.
“There are about 280,000 people employed in this sector of the economy and
allowing venues to safely cater for more customers will provide another boost to
business and jobs," Mr Perrottet said.
"NSW is opening back up for business, and as we ease restrictions everybody needs
to follow the health and safety guidelines, to ensure we make it a success and can
continue.”
Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello, who is responsible for liquor and
gaming regulation, said the NSW Government had liaised exhaustively with both AHA and ClubsNSW to deliver this plan.
“This has been really considered and thought out to make sure we have the best regulatory settings in place,” Mr Dominello said.
All venues must ensure social distancing and will need to develop a COVID Safety Plan consistent with NSW Health guidelines
The AHA and ClubsNSW have confirmed their members will comply with all conditions stipulated by NSW Health.
Patrons have been advised to check with the venue before attending to ensure they will be able to attend.

Snowy 2.0 given go-ahead

Up to 2,000 new jobs will be created and $4.6 billion will be injected into regional NSW with Australia’s biggest energy storage project getting the go-ahead today from the NSW Government.

Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro John Barilaro said planning approval for the Snowy 2.0 Main Works would mean new jobs, big investment and big infrastructure for regional NSW.

“Snowy Hydro is an icon of our community, with Snowy 2.0 already employing about 500 people, directly injecting more than $35 million into the Snowy Mountains and involving more than 100 local businesses,” Mr Barilaro said.

“This latest approval will see the creation of an extra 2,000 jobs during the construction phase, unlock billions of investment in regional NSW and allow the next stage of construction to further progress this legacy project.”

The project involves the construction of a pumped-hydro power station that sits about 800 metres underground and is about 240 metres long – the equivalent of two football fields.
It also includes the construction of 27 kilometres of tunnels between the Talbingo and Tantangara Reservoirs, lined with 130,500 concrete segments manufactured locally in Polo Flat.

Once complete, the project will add 350 gigawatt hours of energy storage and 2,000 megawatts of generation capacity to the State’s grid – enough to power 500,000 homes during peak demand – and play a major role in the National Electricity Market (NEM) by facilitating the development of renewable energy and putting downward pressure on electricity prices.

Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes said the project’s approval includes strict conditions to minimise and offset environmental impacts.

HORSE TRAINING UNDER COVID

With thoroughbred racing able to continue through COVID-19, local trainers are taking a range of options as to how to manage their horses currently.
Georgie Boucher, whose horse ‘Coolamine’ won the Cooma Cup in 2018 is resting up her horses and hoping for the return of more Non- TAB meetings in spring. Georgie is a trainer of 16 years’ experience, based 30 kilometres south of Jindabyne who has had a passion for horses from a young age.
“You get bitten by the horse bug when you’re really young, and for some reason I liked going fast,” says Georgie, who also has past experiences in mountain racing prior to becoming a trainer.

HOLIDAY TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS TO BE LIFTED FROM 1 JUNE
NSW residents will be able to take a holiday anywhere in NSW from next month, with intra-state travel restrictions to be lifted from Monday 1 June, 2020.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Deputy Premier John Barilaro said NSW citizens will be able take recreational trips across NSW, as long as they maintain social distancing and good hygiene.
Ms Berejiklian said lifting the holiday travel restriction will give everyone a much needed break and help get small businesses and the tourism industry moving again.
“This is the day we’ve all been looking forward to since the COVID-19 travel restrictions were put in place earlier this year and I would like to thank everyone for their patience during the past few months of being cooped up at home,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“I must stress to everyone that, while we want people to enjoy a well-earned holiday, we must do this responsibly and continue to abide by physical distancing measures, as the last thing we want is further outbreaks that will force us to reintroduce restrictions.”
Mr Barilaro said while regional NSW will welcome visitors with open arms, holidaymakers should call their planned accommodation venues and attractions to ensure they will be open and confirm their bookings before travelling.
“COVID could not have come at a worse time for regional NSW, with towns already doing it tough due to bushfires and drought and so I encourage everyone to make plans to safely and responsibly visit their favourite regional holiday destination, or discover a new one,” Mr Barilaro said.
“I encourage holidaymakers to visit local businesses, enjoy local attractions and feast on the best food regional NSW has to offer, and for those not able to get away in June, to start making plans for later in the year when even more businesses will be open.
“I’m very pleased to share that this means we will still have a ski season this year, however holidaymakers should be aware that ski resorts will likely need time to put COVID plans into place and you should make contact before visiting.”
Venues are also encouraged to review their booking policies to allow travellers to easily cancel their trip of they have any symptoms.
A number of caravan parks and camping grounds will be open from 1 June, but travellers should call ahead and confirm bookings, while travellers planning to visit national parks should check www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au for further information. Travellers need to especially practise strong hygiene around shared facilities.
Travellers from interstate will be able to visit NSW for a holiday from 1 June but will need to comply with the rules of their home state when returning.

SKI SEASON PLANS

Member for Monaro John Barilaro, said the 2020 ski season will not be at the expense of public health concerns.
“This year has been incredibly tough for the Snowy Mountains with the drought, bushfires and now COVID-19,” he said.
“The bushfires meant businesses in this part of the region lost most of their summer trade. We also lost Selwyn Ski Resort in the fires. The last thing they needed was another setback like COVID-19, but this is the reality we’re facing.
“Throughout this crisis I have kept in touch with local ski resorts, businesses and community members."

That’s great. Hopefully that $3.3m will find its way into the community and help pay for the necessities for all the people in the area that cannot afford them

This Hatchery must donate a lot to the National party.. they get a lot of money given to them each year. Why?

COOMA RED DEVILS 2000 UNDEFEATED PREMIERS

Preview: The Cooma Red Devils came into the 2000 Monaro Cup grand final full of confidence, having not lost a game all season and having the opportunity to host the match at Cooma’s Rotary Oval.
This was the first grand final to be held in Cooma, and the town was buzzing to see if their team could increase their winning streak and finish off a hugely impressive season.
Their opponents where Crookwell, who they had defeated comfortably in the preliminary finals, but would be a tough challenge with the pressure of finals football on. Throughout the season Cooma had built a reputation for being attacking and having terrific ball-play, an aspect of training drilled into them by coach Bill Garnock since pre- season.
Captain and second rower Marcus Caldwell recalls this giving them an edge against all opposition, however he stressed to his players that they had to be at their best to beat Crookwell, despite being undefeated all year.
“The message was not to be complacent. It’s not a given and you don’t win comps by just turning up, we had to rip into them”. As captain, he was proud of the efforts in training and fitness all season as a team.
With strong forwards including James Quodling and Simon King, the speed of Andrew Strode, strategy of Steve Tozer and the experience and craft of Aron Rogers in the backs, the team had “options and weapons right across the park” said captain Caldwell.

BOWLS ROLL UPS AGAIN THIS WEEKEND

The Cooma Bowling Club has begun practice roll-ups for keen bowlers following the decision to lift restrictions on bowlers state- wide earlier this month.
“It’s been a very difficult time. People are just happy to get out here and have a roll up,” says president Mick Mayhew on the ability for bowls to continue in a restricted format in Cooma. Mick has been involved with the Club for more than five years and is excited about a possible return of competition bowls so long as it can occur safely with future health regulations.
“We have always performed fairly well around the district, it will be very good to get back into competition bowls when we can”.
Jindabyne’s bowling green is also back in use for its members, and they have enjoyed some warmer weather to have a roll in recent times. Greenkeeper and Jindabyne Bowling Club president David Turner says the green is at its best at this time of year, and a group of members have enjoyed spending some time at the club.
“It’s good for them because it gets them out of the house for a while,” said David, who is encouraged by the members who are still willing to come and play to the strict conditions set out by Bowls NSW.

MONARO CRICKET'S SUMMER OF 1982/83

A Grade Final: Ex Services Club vs Australian Hotel
After the thrilling semi-finals of the week before, this grand final was set to be a top- quality match, with the bowlers dominating the contest with runs being hard to come by and pressure on at all times, as is typical of finals cricket.
Day 1 saw the Aussie being sent in to bat and starting well through openers Charlie Oades and Paul McGee. They put on 25, McGee the aggressor and Oades the defender as they kept early wickets at bay.
Once medium fast bowler Paul Cullen removed McGee, caught by the safe hands of Don Menchin, his opening bowling partner, the wickets began to tumble.
They went on to take nine wickets between them, five to Cullen and four to Menchin as the Aussie collapsed from 2-36 to all out 89. Oades was the only real resistance, batting over two and a half hours for his 28, with John Welton (10) and Bob Harrison (13) making solid starts but falling to Don Menchin and Dave Mould.
Despite an under par first innings score, the Aussie had a chance to bowl at the Ex Services batsman for over an hour, and made use of this time by removing Bryan O’Neill, Bill Smith and Dave Shingles before stumps was called. These wickets were shared by Bede Nichols, Andrew Spain and Mark Williams, who reduced Ex Services to 3-19 at stumps, anyone’s game at the end of Day 1.
Day 2 was rain affected and began late, with not out batsman from Day 1 Ian McAlister joined by new man Jim Caldwell. Quick bowlers Spain and Nichols picked up where they left off, Spain bowling McAlister for 11 and Nichols trapping Bill Kempster in front for a duck.
The Ex Services had held back some of their main batsman on Day 1 and saved them for later in the innings, however the
Aussie quicks ran rampant through the lower order as they took a combined total of eight wickets.

TIGERS ALL STAR

After a strong first season with the semi-professional Tigers FC, centre back Laurence Redmond is a Monaro junior who is showing his skills in top level ACT football.
Growing up in Berridale, he played junior football for Jindabyne, his hometown and Cooma, as well as representing Tigers in National Premier League Under 20s.
After a successful stint with Cooma Tigers first grade after school, moving to Canberra saw him test himself for Tigers FC at a higher level, with a strong performance in his first season. He and fellow Tigers FC player and Cooma junior Jared Tonini were both named in the ACT Capital Football All Star XI
as a centre back.
The step up has been noticeable for Redmond, but he is showing his ability to mix it with the ACT’s best.
“The pace of the football is much faster, and opposition players are quite technical”.
The Tigers had a strong season last year, winning their first ever Federation Cup and advancing into the national FFA Cup round of 32. In a tournament that includes professional A-League teams and other strong clubs nationwide, this was a major achievement for the Club.

He and fellow Tigers FC player and Cooma junior Jared Tonini were both named in the ACT Capital Football All Star XI 
as a centre back.
The step up has been noticeable for Redmond, but he is showing his ability to mix it with the ACT’s best.
“The pace of the football is much faster, and opposition players are quite technical”.
The Tigers had a strong season last year, winning their first ever Federation Cup and advancing into the national FFA Cup round of 32. In a tournament that includes professional A-League teams and other strong clubs nationwide, this was a major achievement for the Club.
