MAREEBA Bulls Under 12’s soccer star Jonty Taylor alongside two of his team mates have taken on the big stadium in Toowoomba for the Queensland State School Football State Championships, with Jonty taking out player of the match and the player’s player.

Jonty’s mother Natasha Taylor said that from a young age Jonty has always had a large passion for the game. 

“Jonty has been playing football since he was four years old with Mareeba Bulls, he absolutely loves it,” Ms Taylor said.

“He trains all the time and when he is at home he is kicking balls against the brick wall or playing games against his brother. 

“This year we took him down for four days of trials and drills in Cairns with his school (Mareeba State School) and then ended up down in Toowoomba.” 

After the four days of the freezing cold and challenging matches, Jonty took out the player of the match and the player’s player. 

“It was pretty fun, we got to play against some really good teams,” Jonty said. 

“There were some pretty tough games, mainly because it was freezing and raining on the first day. 

“I had lots of fun playing left wing, right midfield and centre midfielder.” 

Jonty will continue to play with the Bulls and hopes to continue playing soccer as a career in the future.
