Picola and District Football League's under-17s side will be coached by John Holschier when it meets Hume Football League tomorrow.May 23, 2014 3:30am
Deni Rovers thirds coach John Holschier will lead a combined Picola and District Football League under-17 side at Tocumwal tomorrow.
The 24-man team is taking on the Hume Football League as a curtain-raiser for the league’s senior footy matches.
‘‘There’s three games on and it should be a great day,’’ Holschier said.
‘‘I think it’s a great idea to have the juniors play a curtain raiser and they get to play four full quarters rather than a round-robin series.
‘‘It’s hard to know how we will go because we don’t know what the opposition is like, but we have sourced players from both sides of the league and there is a bit of talent there.’’
Tungamah has the most representatives in the side with five, while the Rovers and Strathmerton each have four.
Roos players in the team are Liam Zeschke, Rhys Thommers, Joe Hay and Anthony Street, who was also part of Picola’s under-16 side.
Mathoura midfielder Bryce Bish, who was the Timbercutters’ best player in the seniors last week, is also in the team.
The under-17s match starts at 10am.
Team, Deni Rovers: Liam Zeschke, Rhys Thommers, Joe Hay, Anthony Street; Katamatite: James Lukies; Katandra: Jonty Wardle, Riley Williams (emergency); Mathoura: Bryce Bish, Calum Lindberg (emergency); Picola Utd: Blake Jorgensen; Shepp East: Billy Cooper, Chris Bucktin, Tristan Harrison-Drake; Strathmerton: Brayden Coburn, Louis Pinnuck, Matt Ryan, Brandon Duckworth; Tocumwal: Jarrod Morham; Tungamah: James Irvine, Harry McBurnie, Connor McGuire, Joel Bate, Luke Stacey; Waaia: Jesse Trowler, Hamish Rowlands, Rory Knight.
