Several new Estevan junior football team players gathered at the field south of the Estevan Comprehensive School Sunday afternoon for their first practices.
Ethan Veroba was one of the first to register and start practicing.
Coaches hope to get as many as 40 players to join the group and train together this season so that the next year the team that would be known as the Southeast Roughnecks could become a part of the Manitoba Major Junior Football League, which is for ages 18-22.
From now on, the practices will take place every Sunday afternoon with the exception of long weekends.
Anyone interested in becoming a part of the junior football team can email Jason Bresciani and Frank DeBruyn at email@example.com.
