Yates hits the road

ALBURY premiership player Tom Yates has returned to home club The Rock-Yerong Creek.

After building a solid career in the Ovens and Murray, Yates agreed to terms with the Farrer league club this week with coach Michael Mazzocchi delighted to have him back at Victoria Park.

“He’s an ex-The Rock player and a very good one,” Mazzocchi said.

“Tom has done well for Albury and he’ll be a really good player for us.”

Yates played in last year’s flag for Albury and was a member of the Tigers’ losing grand final team against Yarrawonga this season.

He joins Shaun Daly, Jay Koehler, Sam Milne and Mark Bush as confirmed departures from the club.
