Chicken Schnitzel burgers, lamb and gravy rolls and strong coffees were the order of choice for many braving a fresh morning before the sun came out for a beautiful Tuesday in Canberra for the Kanga Cup.
Hawker Grass saw it’s first action of the week as the 2019 VIVA AWD (Athletes with a Disability) Gala Day kicked off.
Seven teams from across Australia descended on the fields as the Gala Day marked the beginning of VIVA AWD competition for the 2019 Tournament.
Their matches will continue alongside other competitions through Wednesday and Thursday before coming to a close at the 2019 McDonald’s Kanga Cup Grand Final day on Friday.
Across the road, the small sided games continued at Hawker Football Centre, while further North things ticked over well at Harrison after a 5:30 am start for the Gungahlin United Football Club volunteers.
At the Kambri Precinct at ANU, former Canberra United star Grace Gill joined young midfielder Laura Hughes at the Girls Get Out session, with youngsters coming out in the heart of Canberra for a fun-filled three hours.
Gill and Hughes spent time helping out and speaking to the players, and Hughes will be back on Wednesday for the final Kanga Kids skill session of the week.
