Bright fu­ture for the Sea Ea­gles

Stirling Times - - Sport -

SCAR­BOR­OUGH Sea Ea­gles Year 12 foot­ball team co-coach Craig Greaves says his play­ers will grad­u­ate into play­ing colts foot­ball at am­a­teur or WAFL level af­ter win­ning back-to-back pre­mier­ships last month.

Greaves said the boys’ win over Ocean Ridge could not have been achieved with­out the club and community’s sup­port.

“The boys were ob­vi­ously very ex­cited and sat­is­fied af­ter the grand fi­nal, as they set them­selves the tar­get of go­ing back to back at the start of the year, which re­quires a lot of ded­i­ca­tion, team work, ca­ma­raderie and fo­cus over a long pe­riod to make it come to fruition,” he said.

“There are two of us that coach the side and we couldn’t be prouder of how they con­ducted them­selves on the field through­out the year and their never-give-in at­ti­tude and team spirit, which was never more ev­i­dent than the grand fi­nal, when they man­aged to de­fend a small lead un­der ex­treme pres­sure.”

Greaves said the most im­por­tant thing for the play­ers was to en­joy which­ever route they de­cided to take.

“I think the ma­jor­ity of the team in­tend to play colts with the Scar­bor­ough Am­a­teur Foot­ball Club next year.

“How­ever some will be play­ing WAFL colts and one of the boys has been nom­i­nated to at­tend the AFL State draft com­bine this month,” he said.
