LIGHTNING FAST: Vince Ponsonby crosses the line in
first place on behalf of his Devonport Football Club
team in last year's inaugural 4x200m footballer's
gift at the Devonport Athletics Carnival.

Fastest footy team to pocket $1000
The Advocate
04 Oct, 2010

THE Devonport Athletic Club is on the hunt for Tasmania's fastest footy team.

And when it finds it, the club plans to give it $1000.

That's the prize for this year's footballer's gift at the Devonport Carnival, which will be held on December 29 and 30.

The relay is a 4x200m format and was won in its inaugural year last year by the Devonport Football Club.

A number of football clubs were invited to participate, but only the Coast's two Tasmanian State League teams Devonport and Burnie participated, with the Devonport team of seniors' regulars Vin Ponsonby, Ben Walker, Touray October and Kurt Butterworth winning easily.

Devonport Carnival elite athlete co- ordinator Rod Walker said organisers were keen to expand the relay.

The event is open to any registered footballer who is not a registered runner.

"We've sent emails to all State League clubs in the North of the state, all NTFL clubs and most country clubs on the Coast," Walker said.

"We're hoping to attract enough interest to have to hold heats in the afternoon and a final at night.

"It's great pre-season training and the chance to win $1000 for your club."

Walker said if entry numbers were sufficient the DAC would even consider increasing the prize money for the event.

The relay is open to all football clubs and any clubs which haven't already been contacted can find out more by contacting DAC secretary Lyn Ryan at
