Colts con­fi­dent go­ing into sea­son

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - DEMONS SEASON PREVIEW -

A DE­TER­MINED colts side is raring to go with be­lief and a pos­i­tive mind­set af­ter a tough sea­son last year.

Colts coach Mark Moody takes up the helm this year in his first se­nior role, with a back­ground in coach­ing ju­nior foot­ball.

Moody said he put his hand up to give back to the club which he and his sons played for.

“Hav­ing two sons play­ing at the club this sea­son and to be given the op­por­tu­nity to hope­fully give back in a small way to such a proud club sur­rounded by many fan­tas­tic peo­ple are amongst the many rea­sons,” he said.

A for­mer De­mon, Moody played se­nior foot­ball from 1988, and in league ranks from 1989 to 1997.

Moody said he wanted to in­stil be­lief in the play­ers and help them main­tain a pos­i­tive mind­set, and while it had been a tough sea­son last year, the colts were mov­ing for­ward.

“Most im­por­tantly to our colts and the club is we re­main pos­i­tive what­ever comes our way,” he said.

There were a num­ber of good play­ers who made their de­but in round one Moody said, with ex­pe­ri­ence to build through­out the sea­son.

“We have about a dozen play­ers that have just played their first game in the colts last week as well as the play­ers that have re­turned which is very en­cour­ag­ing,” he said.

“As the play­ers play more and more foot­ball to­gether, we re­main con­fi­dent that we can only be mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion.

“Hav­ing said that, we must re­alise it will take time.”
