CSU FC and Panorama FC played each other in the Bathurst District Football premier league men’s and women’s grand finals on Sunday and both teams had plenty of support.
Hundreds of CSU and Panorama fans packed out Bathurst’s home of soccer, Proctor Park, to support their sporting idols.
CSU fans did their best Icelandic football team impersonation.
Iceland’s fans are well-known for their iconic viking clap, made famous at the 2016 European Football Championship.
We can’t forget the Panorama support, who brought along drums and sang loudly.
Ultimately, it was CSU who took home the chocolates in both men’s and women’s, claiming a 3-2 and 3-1 win respectively.
Full report on both matches will be in Wednesday’s paper. See sport.
Edgell Jog over for another year
THE Edgell Jog has come and gone for another year and this year was Parade’s first time competing in the event.
Considering Parade didn’t really train for the Edgell Jog, a time of just over one hour and four minutes wasn’t that bad.
If you were one of the entrants, you’ll be able to confirm your time and where you finished online at www.bathurstedgelljog.org.au.
And if you want to put something in your scrapbook, the times and positions are published in today’s Western Advocate, ready to be cut out and kept.
Turn to pages 8 and 9 to see where you ended up in the annual Bathurst running event.
Parade was really pleased to see that, after poor weather last year, the jog organisers got a sunny day this year.
The Bathurst weather is temperamental at the best of times, so you never know what you’re going to get until the day.
You get a free cheeseburger!
SPEAKING of the Edgell Jog, if you finished the race, you would’ve been given a coupon for a free cheeseburger from McDonald’s.
What an incentive to complete the fun run.
As well, it was National Cheeseburger Day on Monday.
