Almost 70 teams to contest Muswellbrook Touch Association's summer competition

ALMOST 70 teams will take to the field in the Muswellbrook Touch Association's summer competition this season.

With it all kicking off at Olympic Park on Monday, September 16, organisers are delighted with the response - and expect some entertaining fixtures to begin proceedings on the opening afternoon.

"It's always been a big participation sport in town," director Paul Benkovic said.

"And, we've received strong numbers again in 2019-20.

"So, everyone's looking forward to another successful year."

Forty sides - in the 6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-17 age groups - have registered for the Bengalla junior format.

Another four will lock horns in the mixed section, while 24 teams are lining up in the mixed division.
