Duo make rep team

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

AFL is mak­ing waves in the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett.

Gayn­dah ju­niors Cal­lan Trott and Ry­ley Dray­ton are headed to the Sun­shine Coast in June for State Cham­pi­onships. The boys have been se­lected in the Wide Bay team that will com­pete in the five­day car­ni­val.

Dray­ton and Trott were se­lected af­ter they played for the North Bur­nett AFL team in Her­vey Bay last week.

Coached by Michelle Geary the team played its first ever games against Her­vey Bay, Gympie and Mary­bor­ough, South Bur­nett and Bund­aberg.

North Bur­nett drew against neigh­bour­ing ri­vals South Bur­nett, but un­for­tu­nately went down in the rest of their games.

The whole team de­vel­oped con­fi­dence and skills over the two day com­pe­ti­tion and looks to be a force in fu­ture years.

Dray­ton and Trott have started a raf­fle to help raise money to­wards their state levies and costs.

The win­ner will re­ceive an AFL jersey of their choice, and the run­ner up will win an AFL cap of their choice.

Tick­ets can be bought at Gayn­dah State School or from the boys.
