Three players from our U15 Walkerville team Luke Valente, Tom Sparrow and Jackson Hately journeyed to Geelong last week to play in the SA representative U15 team in the national AFL competition.
The SA team had a great start knocking off a strong and tall WA side in a thriller on the first day. Then they went on to beat ACT by 13 goals the following day. Unfortunately WA had an upset win over the Vics and so put SA in a tight situation. SA had to beat Vic to meet them again in the grand final. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be with Vic giving SA a masterclass in team football. The Vics were a very slick and well drilled outfit! Putting the loss behind them, SA went on to have a big wins against the NT and Tasmania. The Walky boys say they had a terrific week, improving their skills and making new friends. All three made a great contribution to the team and were named in the best players several times during the week.
Any WJFC U14’s interested in trials for the team next year see the website for information under AFL http://www.decd.sa.gov.au/sport/pages/secondaryschoolsportsa/homepage/?reFlag=1
