The Macleay Valley Eagles had 18 Auskick players travel to Sydney to play on the Sydney Cricket Ground at half-time of the Sydney Swans versus the Gold Coast Suns match on July 8.

Co-club organiser Ronda Colliver said all of the players enjoyed their time playing in front of thousands of people at a huge stadium.

“It was a great experience not only for the players but for the parents too,” Colliver said.

“Most families stayed overnight in Sydney with 10 actually staying at the dormitory at the PCYC at Glebe and they had a really fun time.”

Each year clubs in the Sydney Swans zone are allowed to play on the SCG at Swans home games. 

The Eagles were lucky enough to have two teams and they played against each other on the day.

The group received free tickets to the ground and only three of the juniors had been to the ground before.
