April 24, 2024

Junior soccer players from across the South Burnett – and beyond – have been invited to take part in the second annual Nanango Panthers MiniRoos Carnival.

The inaugural carnival, held last year, attracted local players as well as teams from Gympie, Chinchilla, Dalby, Nambour, Brisbane and the Toowoomba region.

In total, more than 55 teams turned up!

Games this year will be played in Under 6s, Under 7s, Under 8/9s and Under 10/11s.

The event, sponsored by Heritage Nanango, will be held at the Alan Downie Sportsfields on May 26.

Clubs interested in taking part should contact the Panthers by email
