Ready for any chal­lenge

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - BULLS SEASON PREVIEW -

A REIN­VIG­O­RATED Har­vey Bulls colts side have their sights on the top of the lad­der, with big num­bers tak­ing part in pre­sea­son train­ing.

Coach Reese Blechyn­den said the team had pro­duced a fan­tas­tic pre­sea­son with 20 to 30 colts at each train­ing ses­sion.

The play­ers have been build­ing their all-round skills with a par­tic­u­lar fo­cus on de­ci­sion-mak­ing.

This is Blechyn­den’s first sea­son in the post and his first coach­ing role, but he is ex­cited to pass his ex­pe­ri­ence on to the young play­ers.

Blechyn­den said he looked for­ward to shar­ing all he learnt from coaches in re­gional foot­ball and in 10 years at Su­bi­aco in the WAFL.

“As I get older and my foot­ball ca­reer comes to an end I want to pass on this great knowl­edge and give them the op­por­tu­ni­ties that I got.”

Blechyn­den said the colts had been dis­ap­pointed at the end of last year, strug­gling with num­bers, but were ea­ger for the sea­son to start.

“This year is go­ing to be a much bet­ter year for them,” he said.

“Last year they did have a bit of suc­cess, but they didn’t have the num­bers. If all goes well and we can stick to the game plan, I think we can beat any side in the com­pe­ti­tion this year.”
