FORMER Central Highlands Football League rookie of the year, Seb Walsh will be joining the Shepparton Football Club for the 2015 season after having played his entire football career with the Daylesford Bulldogs.
Walsh, 21, was voted the competition’s best young talent in 2012 and was awarded the club’s goal king for the past two years. He kicked 24 goals in his first senior season in 2011, booted more than 50 in both 2012 and 2013 and made 35 last season.
Daylesford Football Club President, Bernie Jurcan said, “Seb has been with us for his whole junior career and is now in his fourth year of senior football.
“He’s quality and he’s a pretty smart football player. He wanted to go to Shepparton to play at a higher standard of football.
Shepparton Football Club Senior Coach, Brad Campbell said, “We are looking forward to getting Seb involved. I’ve seen him train and he’s going to be a valuable addition. He’ll be a handy goal kicker for us, but also has the capability of playing midfield so he will be a very useful player for us.
“He’s just a real high quality person and he’ll take to our club and our group really well.”
