Finley was host to round nine of Cobram Junior Soccer this week, which brought a lot of visitors to town.
Although the grounds were a crisp white during the set-up of boundaries and cake stalls, they were ready for when the Cobram and Yarrawonga teams rolled in.
It was great to see grandparents and friends of the children who were playing come along to support them.
Well done to all the Finley Bakery Award winners for their hard work on the soccer pitch.
