Benalla footballers Chris Welsh and Harry Morrison have been selected in the under-16 Murray Bushrangers squad.
Promising Benalla footballers Chris Welsh and Harry Morrison have been selected to play in the under-16 Murray Bushrangers pre-season squad.
Morrison was also selected as vice-captain for the side, which he said was an achievement to be proud of.
‘‘It was a bit unexpected, but I was pretty happy because it’s a good achievement,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s a good development squad to be in, because you’re learning from different coaches who’ve all played AFL before.’’
This is Morrison’s second year in the development squad, and Welsh’s first.
‘‘I was happy to be selected, I’m able to play with a high calibre of footballers,’’ Welsh said.
The side lined up for its first round-robin match on Saturday, coming away with a 50-point victory against Bendigo Pioneers.
Welsh missed the game through a knee injury, but is expecting to return to face Gippsland this Saturday.
The Benalla pair, both 15, have come through Benalla and District Junior Football League and are now playing for Benalla Saints’ under-18 side.
Morrison said training had stepped up in the transition from junior football to the Goulburn Valley Football League, and he was looking forward to representing the Saints when his commitments to the Bushrangers ended.
