WHEN Jordan Parr sent a thundering volley into the crossbar, he thought it could have been his best ever kick at goal.

The 12-year-old was a standout during the clash between Mundubbera Soccer Club and Gayndah Football Club.

Jordan said even though his kick wasn't a goal, he loved creating opportunities in attacking positions. "I like to score goals but I am usually playing in defence, so getting the ball close enough to score is difficult," he said.

"I like to run with the ball so I can weave my way through the field and get the shot that I want."

Mundubbera coach Douglas Kumar said he had been putting in a lot of time with the boys and the girls to improve their skills.

"(I'm) very happy with the performances today and the improvement is very noticeable," Kumar said.

"We will be going down to Gayndah next week and that will test the players on another track."

Mundubbera club president Wes Allen said the future of the sport looked promising.

"We have 60 registered players now and if we can get everyone to play consistently, we can settle down and go forward," he said.

"Our club has had a fantastic increase in numbers, so we are looking to move forward."
