Selected players have the chance to take part in further training under the guidance of experienced coaches, participate in several matches and join a tour of Sydney..

“For those young aspiring footballers out there, this is a great program to get involved in to enable them to develop their football skills,” said FWAS

Programs and Development Officer Jarrad Linton Harland.

For more information call the Academy on (02) 6847 3638.


Westies, Northies are free to play


West and North players have escaped suspension following a scuffle in round four of Broken Hill AFL.

Bulldogs player Josh Savage was the only player charged.

He was given a ‘severe reprimand’ for rough conduct but won’t miss any matches.

Meanwhile, North’s Wes Burton is available for selection this weekend  after serving a one-week ban for striking.


Shinglebacks back juniors


The Shinglebacks have chipped in to help three young footy players follow their dreams.

Mitchell Henderson, Isaac Cumming and Jayden White are members of two different representative squads.

Cumming and White, pictured below, are in the Under 16 Greater Western Sydney Academy, while Henderson is a member of the NSW/ACT U18 Rams side that plays in the TAC Cup.

The boys’ commitments require extensive travel which they must fund themselves - some matches played as far east as Sydney.

The Shinglebacks have helped the three youngsters with costs incurred attending matches.
