THE Gayndah Touch Association hosted its finals and presentation night at the weekend in the lead-up to the Christmas break and the start of the next season.

Juniors, B and C grade along with the A grade finals were all played at the Gayndah Sportsground.

Interceptors player and Gayndah Touch Association president Stacey Duncan praised all players who took part in the summer season.

"Well done and congratulations to all winners and runners-up in our summer season grand finals,” Duncan said.

"It has been another great year of touch football and we look forward to seeing you all next year.”

Games for the next season will start on Wednesday, January 31.

"We will need all team nominations to Brent Chambers, referee co-ordinator, by no later than mid-January,” Duncan said.

"Our AGM is scheduled for Tuesday the 6th of February at 7pm.

"Thank you to our wonderful, hard-working committee for 2017.”

Duncan also had special praise for the volunteers who helped to make the season a success.

"A big thank you to all those contributed time in the canteen,” Duncan said.

"Especially Tay McCosker, Paula Wilkinson, Leah Trott, Lisa Maddern, Linda Drayton and an one else that has helped us with the bar through out the year.”

Team Stop n Go took out the C grade final early on, while the Interceptors took out the B grade final alongside them.

The A grade final was won by Hash Tags.

The Gayndah Touch Association runs multiple seasons a year, meaning it's never too late to join in.

Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome to play, and groups who wish to start their own teams can also do so.
