Young Lions make squad

By Seymour Telegraph

Seymour Lions young guns Phillip Soloman and Dylan Cook have been included in the initial squad of 29 players to take on the Western Region Football League in this year’s AFL Victoria Community Championships this Saturday at Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval.

Soloman has played five games with the Lions’ senior squad this season, while Cook has represented the Under 18 team in all six rounds and been named best on ground in five of six games.

‘‘The talent of the younger players in our league continues to impress me,’’ interleague coach Jason Wells said.

‘‘It’s been a tough job selecting this squad and it will get even tougher soon reducing it to the 23 who will represent us on the day.’’

The competition age for this year is Under 18.5 to accommodate the older age group of the WRFL.
