We love seeing our sporting clubs lace up

FROM the headers into the net to the tie-breaking serve, the Central Telegraph will always be right there as the sporting action unfolds.

This year we followed the fairytale story of the Biloela Valleys Men’s soccer team who flexed their muscle against the Gladstone clubs and pushed through to the grand final.

While watching this remarkable season unfold and seeing the club prosper has been fantastic, the fact the Central Telegraph will be here to watch this team and the club develop and reach even higher in the coming years is exciting.

The same can be said for Biloela Rugby Union Club who fought all the way to the reserve grade final, facing much bigger players and not looking out of place, only letting the final slip through their fingers with just seconds to spare.

But we’re here to pick the team up and help them jump back on the training paddock.

There’s also been a special groups and individuals who have caught our eyes and put forward dazzling performances on the field.

We’ve seen our World BMX champ Tama Onekawa battle to get his title back, the Little Athletics clubs of Biloela and Moura rack up the medals and a couple of middle-aged fitness gurus claiming accolades on the biggest stage.

It doesn't matter how many trophies you have won or how many games in a row your team has lost, our team at the Central Telegraph is here to report on the blood, sweat and tears you’ve put in and all the fun that comes with sport.

Rural communities and country towns put a high price on sport because it brings value in friendship, fitness and bringing the town together.

We’re here for you.
