South Australia has named its initial squad ahead of this year’s U18 AFL National Championships in June. Featuring 46 players from all eight non-AFL aligned SANFL clubs, the McDonald’s SA U18 Squad will begin training on Monday May 15 ahead of lead-up matches against Tasmania U18 (May 20 at Football Park) and North Adelaide U18/Reserves (May 26 at Football Park).
The Norwood Football Club would like to congratulate all players selected who will represent Norwood Football Club for the first time in this year’s South Australian U18 squad in the upcoming national carnival.
Norwood Football Club Head Coach Jarrod Cotton said it was a great achievement for the selected players.
“The boys should be proud of themselves for making the state squad. It’s an exciting achievement for the players, the club and our development coaches who work with the boys” Cotton said.
