Under 8 Team Write Up Against Brothers 28th April 18

What a beautiful day it was for the first day of the 2018 junior footy season. This year we have 31 little U8ers signed up to play footy for Valleys and it was great to see them on Saturday geared up and ready to take on Brothers. We have a number of boys who are new to the club and to the game and they played so well we are all very proud!

Game 1 – Saw some great tackling with boys working together in numbers against a very drilled Brothers side. Our boys looked really good in attack with some very hard running and tactical passes. Nice team work! Thank-you to our Sponsor Simons Home Hardware

Coach: Darren O’Neill

Man of the Match – Carter McGrady

Player’s Player – Jaxen Salmi

Game 2 – Great team effort by all the kids, very strong in defence and attack with many tries scored. First year for Karter George & Harrison Pollard and you wouldn’t even know it! The kids showed plenty of support with 2 in a tackle. Looking forward to an exciting year. Thank-you to our Sponsor Affordable Quality Kitchens & Bathrooms

Coach: Michael Wilkinson

Man of the Match – Harrison Pollard

Player’s Player – Nash Schwenke

Game 3 – Our game started well with a few quick tries to the team. They played well together and got better as the game went on. Oliver Baker putting on a few try saving tackles. Max Carey looked good each time he touched the ball. Outstanding defence and attack work from Tyrese Duncan-Brown and a special mention to Nicholas Masters getting in there and having a real go! Thank-you to our Sponsor Hooper Accountants

Coach: Darren O’Neill (in lieu of Charles Howe)
