The Ingham Wolves Football Club at the Augie Pane Fields in Ingham hosted the 2021 Annual Junior Romanello Shield football competition last Friday. Despite challenges imposed by weather and COVID, the shield is now in its 50th year with 250 competitors coming from eleven schools to compete.
Eleven teams from Grades 5 & 6 competed to take out the Romanello Shield and eleven teams from Grades 3 & 4 competed for the Gusmeroli Shield, resulting in a day of intense competition between the schools.
The competition started in 1971 at Bambaroo State School, south of Ingham.
James Formosa, a committee member from the Ingham Football Club said, “The history enriched the lives of these kids’ parents [Friday’s junior participants]. We have been able to kick it off again at the Ingham Football Club.”
“[The Romanello Shield] is the junior rival to the Euro 2020, with Italy taking out the trophy.”
“In true Ingham style, we made sure everyone was well fed.”
Volunteers catered at the Ingham FC canteen, with the money raised going back to the Ingham Football Club to promote junior sport. Ingham’s Audrey’s Angels brought their coffee van. Audrey’s Angels assist cancer patients and their families through financial help with their bills and/or sending them away for a stress-free weekend all expenses paid. They also assist cancer patients and their families through helping them with household and yard work and taking them out to lunch to de-stress and talk to others going through the same as them.
Due to it being a hot day, both stalls catered for the long lines.
The winners of the Romanello Shield for 2021 were Lourdes Roar.
The winners of the Hrjsa Trophy were Ingham State School Razorbacks.
The winners of the Gusmeroli Trophy were the Ingham State School Raptors.
The winners of the Telstra Trophy were the Ingham State School Stickers.
