AN AFL masters carnival has been organised by Sandgate Hawks Masters on Sunday, July 9.

Sandgate Hawks Masters delegate Des Warnock started playing with the Hawks Masters in 2009 in the over 35s.

"In 2012 the over 45s was born at Sandgate Hawks and in 2018 we are planning an over 50s team," he said.

"Footy for fun is our mantra and the rules are slightly modified to minimalise injuries.

"We have organised a masters carnival on July 9 at the new AFL fields at Caboolture.

"We're calling all registered AFL masters players to come along.

"If you're a local and you're interested, phone me or turn up at training from 6.30pm on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Hawks," he said.

With 75 registered and financial players, Mr Warnock said Sandgate Hawks was the biggest AFL masters club in Brisbane.

"Anyone who's ever played AFL or is thinking of playing should come down and join the fun.

"Never let a lack of talent stop you from having a go.

"You don't have to play, you just have to love AFL.

"We have the season launch party, a 1980s night, a WAGS (wives and girlfriends) day, father and son weekend and a bus trip to Hervey Bay and presentation night.

"We also do fundraising events throughout the year.

"Hawks Masters is social and fun and occasionally a game of footy breaks out," Mr Warnock said.

For more information about the master's carnival phone Des Warnock on 0409 729 416.
