Coach Phil Wearmouth with Umina United M45D team

A Umina United Eagles over-45 men’s soccer team has been named champion of its division, after it won 13 out of their 14 games this season.

The club’s M45D team manager Mr Phil Wearmouth said he was proud of the team’s efforts in what had been a challenging season.

“It’s more of a social thing for us at this age.

“If the season had been cancelled, then a huge chunk of our social lives is gone,” Mr Wearmouth said.

“I’m really proud of the guys.

“It’s been a great and everybody has contributed.

“We should get pushed up a division next season.”

After the coronavirus pandemic halted the start of the 2020 season, the 18-game fixture list was shortened to 14.
