Under 14s’ close encounter

IN a close encounter at Tynwald Park today, the New Norfolk Under 14s went down to Sorell by six points. It wasn’t until the third quarter that Sorell edged away, but New Norfolk wouldn’t give in and in the final quarter the result could have gone either way. With just minutes remaining, New Norfolk pushed into the opposition’s forward line only for Sorell to bring the footy out and the siren sounded.

The team can hold their heads high as there many positives to take out of the game and new coach Josh Clifford is very proud of them all. There are now 24 players on the track with six new players coming to training during the week. A win is just around the corner.

Results – Sorell 7. 7 (49) d New Norfolk 5. 13 (43). Goals – New Norfolk: Aaron Thorpe 2, Brodie Gleeson, Jakob Triffitt, Nathan Wakefield; Best – New Norfolk: Hayden Smith, Kye Tomkinson, Jahrod Locher, Joshua Raspin, Daniel Browning, Hayden Bielleman.

The team’s next game is against Sandy Bay at Tynwald Park at 2.30 this Sunday. The NNJFC committee needs parents of all age groups to help out in the canteen during home games. If you can give up some time please let me know on 0429 704 677 as Kathy, Chris and David are run off their feet. Thanks to Josh Berry’s mother and sister for their help today.
