Kyabram District Football League coach Rob Auld will field a youthful and quick team against Tallangatta Football League in the AFL Victoria Country Championships tomorrow.OLIVER CAFFREY May 23, 2014 3:10am
Reigning McNamara medallist Josh Pell will lead Kyabram District Football League into interleague action in Albury against Tallangatta Football League tomorrow.
Redemption is on the menu for a new-look Kyabram District Football League interleague side.
Kyabram District is looking to atone for a 77-point loss to Riddell District last year when it travels to Albury tomorrow to take on Tallangatta Football League.
In a minor quirk of the side, at least one player from all 13 teams in the league has been picked.
Reigning McNamara medallist and Merrigum skipper Josh Pell will captain the 31st-ranked AFL Victoria Country Championships side, with Murchison’s James Milne his deputy.
Just five players remain from last year’s thumping at Tatura Park, but coach Rob Auld said that was not necessarily a bad thing.
‘‘We probably feel it’s about right, we’ve got a young team with an average age of about 24 and there are no giants among the team, we’ve picked the team to suit the big ground over there and that should hold us in good stead,’’ Auld said.
‘‘It’s a big, quick ground and hopefully we can hang our hat on running and carrying the footy.’’
Pell has been in terrific form playing mainly up forward this season, having already kicked 36 goals in seven games.
Murchison forward Jake Rennie has also been dominant, booting 35 majors and Auld will be relying on those two guys to have big games.
However, Auld said it would be the midfield run he would be looking at to exploit its 32nd-ranked opposition.
Tallangatta demolished Hume Football League by 97 points last year.
‘‘Having done our research on the opposition, they will be quite strong and it will be a similar sort of side to last year,’’ Auld said.
‘‘They have a few blokes with height and that carry the footy, but we’ll be looking to limit that.
‘‘The main thing we’ve spoken about is being competitive, but we really want to go over there and get the win.’’
Kyabram District is blessed with young midfield talent such as Kasey Duncan (Avenel), Tom Davies (Lancaster) and Michael Liverton (Lancaster).
Those players will be complemented by more experienced players, including Violet Town coach Sean Horsburgh and Lancaster’s Chris Eddy.
