Bright footy fu­ture ahead

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

THREE young foot­ballers are al­ready mak­ing their mark and set­ting their sights on an AFL ca­reer.

Year 5 play­ers Jesse King, Os­car Barry and Diesel King from Aveley Foot­ball Club cel­e­brated their 50th game of foot­ball last week and show no sign of slow­ing down.

Coach Jeff Barry said it was a huge achieve­ment for the 10-year-olds to make 50 games.

“These play­ers haven’t missed one train­ing ses­sion or game in three years, which for play­ers at this age is im­pres­sive,” he said.

The play­ers cel­e­brated their mile­stone game with a spe­cial ban­ner they ran through at the start of the game and a cel­e­bra­tion that co­in­cided with the end of sea­son.

“They were very ex­cited and it was nice to have some­thing to ac­knowl­edge their achieve­ments,” he said.

Barry said he saw a bright fu­ture for the footy play­ers.

“With­out a doubt they could have a ca­reer in foot­ball,” he said.

“They are the three best play­ers at the club – they are very tal­ented.”
