Echuca utility Axel Childs is the latest Kyabram Football Club recruit.
An association with two other Kyabram recruits, cousins Sam and Tom Sheldon, has been the catalyst for Childs’ desire to join the Bombers.
Childs has been a permanent in the Echuca side for the past three years after emerging from the club’s junior ranks.
‘‘I played a lot in the midfield last year and I really enjoyed it and it’s where I like to play best,’’ he said.
Childs said he had nothing against the Echuca club but was keen for a fresh start and challenge as well as getting the chance to play with the Sheldons.
Childs was an Echuca teammate of Tom Sheldon two years ago. ‘‘I’m really looking for to it. It’s going to be really good,’’ Childs said. Currently in the last of a four year university course in Melbourne, Childs is expected to join the Melbourne based players at training. Kyabram recruiting head Peter Croxford said yesterday the Bombers are also negotiating with a former North Melbourne player to join the club this season.
