Our ju­niors shine in league count

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS - WADE GLEE­SON

TWO New Nor­folk Ju­nior Foot­ball Club play­ers in Charlie Lovell and Bai­ley Wheeler have made their mark in their re­spec­tive age groups by tak­ing out their best and fairest awards in the South­ern Tas­ma­nian Ju­nior Foot­ball League.

Charlie, who plays with the Un­der 17s as a mid­fielder and vice-cap­tain, has had a stel­lar sea­son. Charlie has been a fine leader for her team and played an im­por­tant role in this Sun­day’s grand fi­nal win against King­bor­ough.

Bai­ley Wheeler, our other champ in the mak­ing, took out the Un­der 14C best and fairest award. The ev­er­im­prov­ing mid­fielder has had a num­ber of peo­ple talk about his abil­ity this sea­son, which has stemmed from last sea­son when he made the state Un­der 12 team.

Bai­ley plays a year above is age which says a lot in th­ese early years. He fin­ished run­ner-up in the NNJFC Un­der 12 best and fairest last sea­son and will most likely be in the mix again at this sea­son’s club count. WELL done to NNJFC pres­i­dent Chris Lovell, who was made a life mem­ber of the STJFL at the awards night.

Lovell has been an un­tir­ing con­trib­u­tor to both the STJFL and NNJFC for many years. THE New Nor­folk Ju­nior Foot­ball Club best and fairest counts and tro­phy pre­sen­ta­tions will be held at the New Nor­folk Dis­trict Foot­ball Clu­b­rooms on Fri­day from 6pm for 6.30pm start.

Counts will be held for the Un­der 12 boys, Un­der 13 girls, Un­der 14 boys and Un­der 17 girls. Sup­per will be pro­vided with a $5 cover charge for adults —chil­dren get in for free. THE NNJFC will hold its an­nual player-guardian
