Round 11 LadderRound 11 TipsAN exceptional future lies ahead for young local footballer, Kyle Clarke, who has recently been selected by well renowned, national Indigenous team the Flying Boomerangs under-15s football side.
The side was chosen from players competing at the Cairns National Diversity Championships back in April. Kyle in the role of team captain at the event, took his combined Victorian/Tasmanian team through to the finals against a Western Australian side. Five players were chosen from each state to go on and play for the Flying Boomerangs’ new side.
Shepparton United Coach Chris Borzen has described Kyle as a terrific kid, remarking that he wouldn’t be surprised if he made it to the top.
A highly skilled young footballer with the right attitude and the drive to succeed, Kyle is set to be an inspiration for up-coming young players and a great representative of the Shepparton community.
The newly chosen side is set to meet on the Gold Coast next Saturday for a tournament featuring both national and international teams.
The Boomerangs have produced a number of AFL players including Jay Kennedy-Harris, Austin Wonaeamirri, Leroy Jetta, Malcolm Lynch, Cameron Stokes, Isaac Weetra and Nathan Krakouer.
