Hore picked in team of year

The Riverine Herald - - SPORT - By Andrew John­ston

FOR­MER LeitchvilleGun­bower, and cur­rent Colling­wood VFL and Echuca foot­baller Marty Hore has added an­other string to his bow, as he pushes for pos­si­ble AFL se­lec­tion in 2019.

The gun de­fender has been se­lected in the VFL’s Team of the Year in the back pocket, af­ter an­other out­stand­ing sea­son in Colling­wood’s VFL side.

With a se­ries of in­juries im­pact­ing the Mag­pies at AFL level, their VFL team has been stretched to cover those called up to the se­niors, leav­ing more work for Hore and his VFL team­mates.

The Pies got through to the fi­nals de­spite the stress­ful sea­son, be­fore falling to Essendon in the elim­i­na­tion fi­nal.

It’s been a great few months for Hore, with his re­cent in­clu­sion in the Vic­to­rian state draft com­bine open­ing the door for his pos­si­ble se­lec­tion to an AFL team this year.

And on his form of the past two sea­sons, which also in­cludes win­ning Colling­wood’s VFL best and fairest in 2017, it’s safe to say a few clubs will be hav­ing a se­ri­ous look at Hore for 2019 and be­yond.
