Young Devils ready and rar­ing for fi­nal

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Wangaratta City Football Club -

A fan­tas­tic de­fender that can step up to any po­si­tion, if re­quired. Likes the struc­ture of de­fence and holds her line beau­ti­fully. Has de­vel­oped great skills as a goal keeper this year. Reese is strong, tena­cious and can put in a great tackle.

Played in cen­tre de­fence all year. Emily’s strength is her touch and lovely long kick out of de­fence. Emily is a clever player who un­der­stands tim­ing and ball place­ment. A key player on the team.

Right back who has im­proved out of sight this year. Made­line is a tall strong player with a great kick and su­perb long thrown in. She has thrived this year on the team struc­ture and pos­i­tiv­ity. She al­ways puts in a solid per­for­mance.

A great wing player who has speed, en­thu­si­asm and dogged de­ter­mi­na­tion. Lucy has also played de­fence and mid­field this year and has scored a cou­ple of crack­ing long range goals.

Zoi mainly plays on the wing and has some lovely skills in get­ting past de­fend­ers and cross­ing the ball into the goal area. A quiet player but de­ter­mined on the ball and will never give up. UN­DER 11s SOC­CER

A new player this year, El­iza has played wing, mid­field and striker. A quiet young lady who has grown both in skill and con­fi­dence in a very sup­port­ive team. El­iza was key in get­ting the team through to the fi­nal with some lovely as­sists from the wing in the semi.

New to soc­cer this year, Audrey has shown great en­thu­si­asm in learn­ing new skills and tech­niques. She played out of her skin in the semi to as­sist the team to reach the grand fi­nal. Her place­ment and tack­ling on the wing was ex­tra­or­di­nary.

Tully played in de­fence and on the wing this year. She is a tall player with a great kick and be­came very handy link­ing de­fence and wing play. Tully is cur­rently over­seas with her fam­ily and will un­for­tu­nately miss this year’s fi­nal.

Mia is an ex­plo­sive, tal­ented player who has the abil­ity to take a team apart from the wing. Speedy, ag­ile and tena­cious, Mia is a great as­set to our team. Cur­rently trav­el­ling Aus­tralia with her fam­ily Mia will miss this year’s fi­nal.

A ver­sa­tile player who has skills in both de­fence and goal­keep­ing. Her calm­ness in front of goal and mea­sured per­son­al­ity make her a great as­set on the pitch. PHOTO: Marc Bongers
