Albany Advertiser - - SPORT - Cameron New­bold

A large group of Al­bany Ju­nior Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion play­ers are tak­ing part in an Asian tour, rep­re­sent­ing WA Coun­try at the Singa Cup and Phuket Youth Cup.

The Foot­ball West De­vel­op­ment de­part­ment se­lected the play­ers in five squads af­ter their per­for­mances dur­ing the QBE county week and a re­sult­ing coun­try camp.

The AJSA has 18 play­ers, the high­est num­ber in sev­eral years, across the WA Coun­try squads with the boys’ un­der-12, un­der-14, un­der-16 and girls’ un­der-16 teams com­pet­ing in the Singa Cup, which started this week, while the boys’ un­der-13 side will play in De­cem­ber’s Phuket Youth Cup.

Foot­ball West paid credit to the strength of the lo­cal com­pe­ti­tions and said this tour was a great op­por­tu­nity for tal­ented play­ers in the re­gion who did have ac­cess to met­ro­pol­i­tan path­ways.

The AJSA rep­re­sen­ta­tives are Ella Ne­unuebel, Zara Whoo­ley, Char­lotte Musk, Ta­vanna Lembo (un­der-16 girls), Henry Gold­smith (un­der-12 boys), Char­lie Wal­ters, Tom Gawned, Liam Ru­bie-Maz­zali (un­der-13 boys), An­gus Spencer, Liam Brad­shaw, Kit Nuthall, Ewen Maisey, Oliver Trichilo, Parker Win­gard, Cal­lum Jones, Jac­ques Swarts (un­der-14 boys), Jack Sem­ple and Tyson Rowe (un­der-16 boys).
