Kyabram District Football League coach Robbie Auld believes his league should stick with a youth policy for future interleague games, despite his young side struggling against a bigger, more experienced and more physical Tallangatta league after half-time at Albury on Saturday.
A 111-point loss resulted in the KDFL slipping to 33 and second last on the leagues ranking list. It meets one tier Sunraysia-based Mininera league next year for the dubious honour of being the bottom-ranked country football league in the state.
Auld is confident there are better times ahead for his league, despite the hefty loss to Tallangatta and he believes the young group who represented the league on Saturday are the future of the league for these games.
One of those group of youngsters, Lancaster utility Tom Davies, 18, certainly stepped up his interleague debut, being named KDFL’s best player in the game.
Merrigum star Chris Kilmartin and Rushworth’s Scott Hamilton were also among the better players.
Captain, Merrigum’s Josh Pell, and Avenel’s Kasey Duncan stood out early in the game and were main reasons why their side was just 12 points down at half-time.
But many of team’s players seemed overawed when Tallangatta stepped up the pace in the second half.
