Charlie Morrison made his debut for Benalla on Saturday against Kyabram and wasn't at all out of place, with an impressive performance.OLIVER CAFFREY July 28, 2014 3:10am
Saturday’s classic Kyabram-Benalla battle is one Charlie Morrison will never forget.
The Saints’ under-18 captain took to Kyabram Recreation Reserve for his first Goulburn Valley Football League senior game.
Morrison made a huge first impression on the big stage, finishing with a goal and almost kicking a second in the final term.
He hit the post from about 40
Morrison looked like a natural senior footballer and was not overawed by taking on the reigning premier.
‘‘I found out Thursday night at training; it was a bit unexpected coming up from the thirds, but l’ve learnt a lot from it and I’ll take it all back into the thirds now,’’ Morrison said.
‘‘I’ve played up forward all my juniors, there’s a good group of boys up forward with me, helping me out and showing me the way.
‘‘There’s no better feeling than walking off that field with a good group of boys around me after a win like that — I loved it.’’
While the dominant Saints still have experienced players to come back in, coach Luke Morgan said Morrison was one who would continue to play senior football into the future.
‘‘He’s presented well across forward, kicked a goal and learnt a lot from the experience of stepping up to the next level of footy,’’ Morgan said.
‘‘He’s probably going to be a long-term prospect for us across half-forward and it’s great to give him a go.’’
