PLAYERS OF THE WEEK. Billy Elsworth & Jemimah Mitchell & Marley Tunks & AJ Howarth

May 21, 2018

BOYS Player of the Week - Billy Elsworth



U10 - A first year player at the Bombers, Billy is a versatile, athletic kid who excels when he gets an opportunity in the ruck for the mighty ‘Spitfires’.

Billy possess a good leap and against the Leichardt Cygnets on the weekend used it to give his teammates regular first use of the ball.

When he’s not tapping to advantage, Billy loves a big grab!











GIRLS Player of the Week – Jemimah Mitchell



U15YG-  Mimah is one of our key defenders, playing on the half-back line she is a strong, tough player who contests every ball and always plays with 100% effort.

In her second season of AFL, Mimah has continued to show her fantastic ability to shift in defence and be a leader within the team.

She was a massive contributor to our latest win against St Ives, a great contest where Mimah showed amazing athletic ability and use of the body. Good Stuff Mimah!



Auskick BOYS Player of the Week – AJ Howarth



U8 Boys -I like footy because I get to play with my best friends.

Kicking the ball with my dad is fun. I like kicking goals.

Playing for the Bombers is awesome. We love playing together and the teams are fun to play with. I’m in the Under 8’s but I’ve played up in the under 9’s twice, and that’s lots of fun too. I am looking forward to when we can tackle. 

I’ve been playing for 3 years now and I want to play as long as my dad. He is still playing for Manly even though he is really, really old and slow. My favourite team is The Swans and I love watching Buddy play.

Go Swans.





Auskick GIRLS Player of the Week – Marley Tunks



U6/7 Girls- In 2016 Marley was diagnosed with a severe form of epilepsy and has had over 2000 seizures. This time last year, running around on a footy field was the furthest thing her family could have imagined for her. Fortunately things have improved and Marley was really keen to play footy this year, like her Dad. She just loves everything about Auskick.

Her skills and confidence have improved so much, but the thing she loves most is hand-balling. She wants to practice every spare minute from when she wakes up to just before going to bed. Marley even sleeps with her footy ... she really can't get enough of it!

Marley is a Swans fan and is excited to be going to her first game this year.



Being our Players of the Week they have won a free sausage sandwich or egg and bacon roll and a drink from the Club House canteen.
