Junior LIONS news

CLGFC would like to congratulate the following Lions Junior players who were selected in their respective age group SANFL Juniors “Team of the Year” for 2016.

In the U16.5 grade medal count 2 of our junior veterans, Nick and Jack Cousins each received 16 votes to tie in 4th place which also gained them both selection in the U16.5 Team of the Year. Great effort boys. You both have been fantastic players for the Lions for many years and we hope for many years to come.

In the U13 medal count, the Lions Liam O’Connor-Dawkins finished in 3rd position with 34 votes so well done Liam you have had a great season. Thomas Eriksson also polled 7 votes in the count which meant both Thomas and Liam were selected in the U13s’ Team of the Year’ so well done to Liam and Thomas for having a great season.

In the U12 s count the result went right down to the wire with Tyson Coe finishing in 2nd position which is a fantastic effort and Tyson has had a very successful season with many great accolades. Josh Smith and Jamie Vidale also received selection in the “Team of the Year” so a big congratulations for a great season capped off by a valiant effort in the Grand Final which the whole team played 4 quarters of committed team footy but unfortunately lost by 2 points in a nail bite.

All in all its been a great season at “The Lions” and a big pat on the back must go out to all Players, Coaches, managers, game day volunteer helpers and of course the parents and supporters for standing proud with the Junior Lions and supporting their respective teams. “Go Lions”
