Hunter signs with Carlisle

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Front Page -

FOR­MER West Coast Ea­gles swing­man Adam Hunter says he was swayed by the vi­sion of the Carlisle Cougars hi­er­ar­chy when de­cid­ing to sign with the club for the 2018 sea­son.

The 2006 AFL premier­ship player has joined the club as a player and re­serves coach from Whit­ford War­riors, where he played and coached for three years.

“The op­por­tu­nity came up to play some­where a bit closer to my home in High Wy­combe and I like what I heard from the club here,” he said.

“I coached at Whit­ford and Boul­der be­fore that. We fin­ished in the fi­nals dur­ing my three sea­sons at the War­riors.

“I’ve played around the state in the South West Foot­ball League and the Gold­fields League so I have ex­pe­ri­ence, but there is no one thing that I can help the boys with but I’m happy to help in any­way pos­si­ble.”

Se­nior coach Mark Gro­gan said Hunter’s sign­ing came at an ex­cit­ing time for the club.

“We’ve been aligned with the Vic­to­ria Park Raiders Ju­nior Foot­ball Club for about 10 years and this year we have about 50 colts play­ers, which is re­ally ex­cit­ing,” he said.

“We are also look­ing at putting a fe­male side to­gether in 2019.”
