Kyabram young gun Nick Holman will make his senior AFL debut tonight when Carlton take on Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
Nick, who has been named as starting on the interchange bench for tonight’s match, will officially become the 36th player from Kyabram to make an AFL debut, with the last Kyabram AFL player being Richmond Tigers Brett Deledio.
Formerly a player for the Murray Bushrangers, Nick was selected by Carlton in the 2013 National Draft and has played the entire year with the Carlton VFL side the Northern Bullants.
Father Peter Holman, mother Kylie, sister Katie and brothers Tom and Ben will head over for the match tonight.
For Tom and Ben the flight has a quick turnaround, with both boys flying back to Kyabram tomorrow for their own matches.
Peter said he was incredibly excited to be flying to Adelaide to watch Nick play.
‘‘We are all pretty excited and we are really looking forward to it,’’ he said.
‘‘Nick flew over yesterday morning with the club and he said he was pretty excited as well so hopefully he gets a good night's sleep and is ready to go.’’
