In what promises to be a great day of representative football, we are hosting two action packed games on Sunday 4th September!

The Under 17 Colts team is a truly representative team, with at least one player nominated from each club who fields an Under 17 team.

This inter-league match was started as an initiative to encourage player retention. It allows our outgoing players a final chance to represent their junior league, before making the transition to a senior club.

The squad has been training under direction from Head Coach Dan Marshall. Flanked by Darin Edwards (Senior Asst Coach) and Leonie Kroehnert (Development Coach). Over the 5 week program, our top-age boys have relished in the valuable development program.

Under 17 Colts Interleague v Yarra Junior Football League: 

When: 2.00pm – Sunday 4th September

Where: Moorleigh Reserve, Bignell Road, Bentleigh East (behind the Moorleigh Community Center).

At the other end of the representative team pathway, an Under 12 squad will play an intra-league game as a curtain raiser on Sunday.

Players were nominated by clubs to fill two equally graded teams.

A slightly shorter program has allowed some keen Under 12 players a small taste of the talent pathway while providing a no-release program, culminating in a ‘friendly’, intra-league match.

Under 12 Curtain Raiser – Red v Blue teams: 

When: 12.00pm – Sunday 4th September! 

Where: Moorleigh Reserve, Bignell Road, Bentleigh East (behind the Moorleigh Community Center). 

Program will be provided on the day to see who playing in the RED or the BLUE!
