UNDER-18 GIRLS’ PRESEASON SQUAD
The next crop of potential Murray Bushrangers has been announced.
The TAC Cup outfit has named its under-18 boys and girls training squads ahead of next season, with 136 hopeful players set to work hard for the chance to pull on the Bushies jumper.
The girls’ list has been whittled down from an initial number of 150 to the 46 names, announced on Thursday.
Of those 46, at least 18 will be very familiar to football fans of the region, with local talents ready to showcase their wares throughout the preseason.
‘‘(The task was) difficult in selecting the preseason squad with so many talented young female footballers within our region emerging due to the exponential growth in female football,’’ female talent co-ordinator Briana Cossar said.
Almost half of the boys’ squad of 90 is made up of products from the Goulburn Valley and its nearby surrounds, with 43 names on the list coming from close to home.
‘‘The squad has been selected following club nominations, trial games and meetings with regional Local inclusions Kate Adams, Charli Boschetti, Claire MacGill, Ellie Mifka, Kelsey Moylan (Shepparton United); Teagan Brett (Shepparton Notre); Millie Brown (Mooroopna); Paris Crelley, Hayley Doohan, Abby Favell, Theodora Miaoudis, Holly Robinson, Kayla Smith (Finley); Sarah Lange-Richards (Tatura); Sophie Locke (Euroa); Tali Verhoeven (Northern Angels); April Atkinson, Wystasie Walker (Rumbalara).
