Saints seeking fresh blood ahead of pre­mier­ship de­fence

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - FIND A -

AUSSIE RULES: Fresh off their first pre-sea­son train­ing ses­sion, reign­ing pre­miers Sawtell-Toormina Saints have wasted no time in fir­ing up their re­cruit­ment drive ahead of the 2019 AFL North Coast Women’s sea­son.

Vice cap­tain Rhi­anon Tay­lor said last year was a great jour­ney and she hopes new blood will join the ride for sea­son two.

“It was good to play a sport where girls got to know each other,” Tay­lor said.

“I didn’t just make friends, get fit and learn ball skills; I had fun like I haven’t had playing a sport be­fore.

“Of course win­ning the first ever com­pe­ti­tion was a high­light, that was re­ally ex­cit­ing.”

The Saints held their first train­ing ses­sion on Wed­nes­day night, with only one goal in mind for the new year.

“We’re ready to back up and win the pre­mier­ship again.”

“We’ve got some fresh faces that have joined but we’re look­ing to get more down to our train­ing.

“Any­one that would like to try a new sport with a great group of girls should def­i­nitely come down.”

The Saints train Mon­day and Wed­nes­day’s at Richard­son Park from 6pm.

The AFL North Coast Women’s sea­son will get un­der way in April.
