This weekend local football players from across the region will be travelling to Port Pirie for the 2019 State Country Championships.
25 of the best football players picked from the Mortlockshield carnival will represent the Eyre Peninsula, with 1 men’s team and one women's team.
The state carnival will see 6 teams from across the state battle it out on the Saturday with results to determine the Sunday games.
The annual football carnival is played at a different location each year with one of the six zones picked to host the event.
As a result of the carnival, Eyre Peninsula football will be put on hold for another week with round 10 to resume next week, July 20th.
