Avenel's senior football sdie opened its account in fine style against Violet Town.CHALPAT SONTI April 16, 2014 3:28am
Ryan Lambert only has eyes for the ball as he gets this kick away in the senior game but his opponent only has eyes for him.
When you talk of keeping the lid on early hopes, Avenel knows better than just about any club the need to do that, but there’s definitely a buzz in Swansland.
And that got just a little bit louder after the club’s most impressive win in quite some time on Saturday, a 34-point beating of Violet Town.
It’s the first time in some years the Swans have beaten the Towners but probably what was more impressive was the side improved the way it was expected to from the first round fade-out at Stanhope.
And player-coach Cameron Gillett warns Avenel is nowhere near peak yet.
‘‘We’re into it now but it’s still going to take four or five weeks before we are at full fitness,’’ he said.
‘‘The boys ran this game out well but they got a bit tired the first 10 minutes of the last quarter and they came back at us. But we managed to pull away again.’’
The key was managing the rotation of star midfielders Don Stirling and Michael Morgan.
