Colts unite to take on best young foot­ballers

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport -

FOOT­BALLERS from all seven Lower South West Foot­ball League teams will rep­re­sent the re­gion at the Great South­ern Colts Car­ni­val this week­end.

Fol­low­ing on from their third con­sec­u­tive win at last year’s grand fi­nal, 25 play­ers aged 1519 from teams across the league will make their way to Kulin this week­end.

Unit­ing to be­come the LSWFL Roy­als, the team will com­pete against the best foot­ballers from Esper­ance, the Gold­fields, the Up­per Great South­ern, Peel, the Wheat­belt and Ongerup.

Coach Josh Rayson said the car­ni­val gave the play­ers an op­por­tu­nity to test them­selves against the best play­ers in the State.

“There are a lot of play­ers who have put a great deal of ef­fort into be­ing a part of the team rep­re­sent­ing the LSWFL,” he said.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for the guys.

“This is one age group where you want to give them an op­por­tu­nity to play against dif­fer­ent as­so­ci­a­tions.

“It’s re­ally great to see a squad of play­ers so en­thu­si­as­tic about rep­re­sent­ing the re­gion,” he said.

The Roy­als will kick off the car­ni­val against the Gold­fields at 9am on Satur­day.
