Rochester’s Kelly Shotton has been selected for the Vic Country football under 18s team.
The team will play its first game on Anzac Day — a friendly against Vic Metro.
Shotton is looking forward to the nationals in Canberra in May, where the team will take on Western Australia and Vic Metro.
Echuca Bombers youth girls coach David Pearson was delighted Shotton was chosen for Vic Country.
‘‘She is a very skilful player, a good kicker, good running player and a fantastic person to have on the team,’’ he said.
Shotton plays on the wing and forward line.
Her commitment to the sport has been consistent.
She played with the Elmore under 14s and was the only girl on the team.
Shotton said the boys were supportive and she was treated the same as any other player.
When she was too old to play for the under 14s, she took a break from the sport until the Echuca Bombers youth girls formed last year.
Shotton travels to Melbourne every second Thursday to train with the Calder Cannons in Craigieburn.
She said her mother was also committed to making the trip for 7pm training and was grateful of the support.
Shotton was thrilled to be one of the 27 chosen for Vic Country out of 70 hopefuls.
