Myrtleford’s Ryley Bouker will join the league’s list of schoolboy debutants this year at home against Wodonga on Saturday.
“He’s playing very well in the Wangaratta and District Junior Football League and he’s trained on and off with the seniors,” co-coach Terry Burgess said.
“He’s got a mature body, he’s around 191cms and 80kgs and is a goalkicker.
“We really value our juniors coming through, even though we don’t have under 18s, our under 16s are a really good bunch so our 18s should be really competitive next year.”
Ryan Crisp returns from a broken foot, while Elijah Wales is back from Footscray VFL.
