COVID-19 restrictions have dashed hopes a junior soccer competition could go ahead in a restricted form in the South Burnett this year.
Football South Burnett made the difficult decision on Monday night to scrap plans to hold the Under 12/13 and Cadet competitions.
The Senior Women’s competition was also cancelled.
“The two main reasons were low player numbers and also trying to work with the COVID-19 restrictions,” a Football South Burnett spokesperson said.
“The Senior Men are going to try to formulate a plan to play a small-sided competition in Kingaroy.
“Thank you to all clubs and their volunteers who have been scratching to try to give our players a competition.”
Under 6s to Under 11s games were cancelled earlier in June.
