Spirited response

A BUNDABERG Spirit Under-19 side has been given a guaranteed entrance to the 2010 Queensland State Youth League after a “phenomenal” showing at Wednesday’s trials.

Development officer Richard Mitchell said 42 players attended the training.

“It was a phenomenal response, a good mix of younger and older players,” he said.

Football Bundaberg chairman Greg Bath said as a result, Bundaberg would “definitely” field a team in the competition for the first time next year.

“The response we had on Wednesday night was very encouraging. We could have almost fielded two teams, and very strong teams,” Bath said.

The team will play in a southern competition with players from South-East Queensland.

For the next month Football Bundaberg officials will hold trials each Wednesday for Under-19 and Bundaberg Spirit players.

Now young guns such as Lynton Seary, 18, and Michael Coleman are intent to show Queensland’s best what they are made of.

“We can’t wait to get out there and play,” Seary said.
