Holmes Is A Local Champ

Football Margaret River is delighted to inform you that Garry Holmes is the winner of the player of the year award for South West soccer league in Premier Men’s reserve grade. In 2012, Holmes played a vital part in the success of the club with the training of some of its junior players. The award is quite well deserved and as more junior players are expected to join the club next year and play with players of Holmes’ calibre, the season looks promising.

Polo Team Emerges Victorious In Hard Fought Final

After an arduous weekend of polocrosse and a close final against Kojonup, the Margaret River polocrosse team won the State championships last weekend in Perth. With coach Barry Butterly utilising his extensive experience and knowledge, the team displayed some brilliant teamwork and managed to beat all opponents in the C-grade contest. The victory was an excellent boost for the sport of polocrosse in the south west and is expected to entice local young talent like Justin Buchanan and Emily Walsh back to the area.

About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
