ON Wednesday night the Narooma Lions and Bermagui Breakers showed that their futures are bright within the Sapphire Coast AFL as they had an extremely successful night at the league presentation night at the Merimbula RSL.

The two clubs had multiple award winners on the night with Rocco Lagana (46 Goals) and Campbell Moresi (15 Goals) from the Bermagui Breakers taking out the U13 and U11 goal kicking awards respectively. Bermagui’s Jayden Scott was awarded best boundary umpire for the Sapphire Coast AFL Umpires Association whilst Kylie Scott was awarded the volunteer of the year award from a number of nominees for her hard work around the club. The Bermagui Breakers who have had a fine season on the field in the U13s and U11s will go into this weekend’s matchup’s against Merimbula and Broulee/ Moruya quietly confident as they look to progress to next weekend’s grand final.

The Narooma Lions were dominant in the junior grades in 2015 claiming all three best and fairest awards on the night. In the U11s Kurtis Carlson was awarded joint best and fairest for 2015 while Matthew Parker was runner up in the U11s. In the U13s Thomas Hodge won a dramatic vote count by three votes after he led his team to the finals in 2015 after going winless in 2014.

The Narooma U16s side has been dominant in 2015 having claimed the minor premiership, claiming a win in the second semi-final to progress straight to the grand final while also going undefeated so far in 2015. To cap off a great season the Lions took out all U16s awards with Zak Wilson coming runner up in the grade after claiming the best and fairest in 2014. Wilson’s teammate Jai Reed capped off a stellar season personally and for the 16s side claiming both the U16s leading goal kicker with 56 goals while also claiming the U16s best and fairest after running away with the vote count early in proceedings. After being involved with the NSW state school boys’ team in Geelong the future looks bright for Jai Reed.

After such a successful night for the Narooma Lions and Bermagui Breakers the future for both clubs looks extremely bright with football operations coordinator Jarrod Moore crediting the clubs for a great year, ‘Both clubs have put a lot of effort into their junior development programs over the course of this year and past years which has been reflected in their results in the junior grades this season as well as their great results in school competitions such as the Paul Kelly Cup which sets the clubs up for future success’.
