Young Guns join the Tigers

The Tigers Under 18 grade team for 2013 will be missing quite a few players due age qualifications with many of this talented team now training for senior grade selection.

Heading the list is Captain Steve Camp along with fellow promising NEAFL prospects Alec McCormick, Kieren Shea, Kyle Farrugia, Mitch Haley, Toby Yeates,  James Armstrong, Mitch Price, and Justin Galloway – all of whom have been regular attendees at training pre and post Christmas.

With the loss of such a quality group of players from the Under 18 Grade age group, there were concerns as to there prospects for season 2013 however in recent weeks three players have joined the ranks who have potential to become NEAFL players of the future.

Leading the way is Bateman’s Bay Hawks junior prospect Jarrod Thompson who has moved to the area as a student of the Erindale College (AFL component).  His talents have already been recognised with possible selection in this weeks GWS Reserve Grade trial match against fellow NEAFL Club Sydney Hills Eagles.

Thompson joins the Tigers through the recently announced alliance with the Hawks of which the Tigers are now heavily involved in promoting and developing the South Coast Hawks brand.

Also joining the club is the highly talented prospect from Bermagui,   Brandon Lagana who has been sought after by a number of Canberra based clubs. He signed during the GWS Development Squad trials held at Dairy Farmers Park last weekend.

Since last November the Club has also had the privilege of another up and coming local training with the senior grade squads.  Local Magpies product Tyler Collins (16) moved to Jerrabomberra prior to Christmas and has joined his cousin Hayden Kelly as a playing  member of the Tigers Club for 2013.

All three are welcome additions to the Club and will be given every opportunity throughout the season to show their talents at higher levels.
