The footy will be hot early today with the 16’s always a close battle with the Parrots and the 18’s a crucial top 5 clash. The action on the court will be just as fierce with the 13’s on the rebound, our Cs searching for two in a row and our Bs in form and on track for 3 on the trot.
Congratulations to Brayden McCarrey who plays his 50th Senior game today. A 2013 U18 Premiership player, today is also his 111th in the Red & the Blue. 2019 Interleague and Team of the Year selection are among his accolades. With pace, agility, a great leap, a 60m leg and a few tricks up is long sleeve, if he can complete an injury free season anything is possible.
The Youth Girls footy kicks off tomorrow 1pm with a home game v Woodside. The season ahead is really exciting for the girls with a 13 round season and an expanded 14 team league. The top 6 will compete in a 3 week finals series. The league stretches from Bairnsdale to Phillip Island and our games v Phillip Island, Bunyip, Dalyston & Korumburra-Bena will be played in the Valley to reduce travel. Our girls train each Monday & Wednesday night and now is not too late to start.
