AFL Goldfields shine at V Line Cup

AFL Goldfields had 22 representatives in the U15 Western Bulldogs NGA squads who participated recently in the V/Line Cup in Shepparton as well as Head Coach Rick Andrews.  The squads played 2 games each winning all four games and enjoying an education session with SALT on the Tuesday as well as feedback sessions with their coaches.


Thanks to the Western Bulldogs for their outstanding support of this program which provides players with the opportunity to participate against the best U15 players across Country Victoria.


Thanks also to V/Line, AFL Victoria, the amazing coaching group led by Rick of Ben Walsh, Shayne Breuer and Tim Hunt and especially to the families of the boys who have supported them across the V/Line campaign.


We look forward to following the progress of these players as they move through the junior ranks and into the GWV Rebels program.
