Player of the Week – Mason Mulchay (U11)
Mason Mulchay, who is playing his first year at Manly Bombers, has taken to AFL like a fish to water.
A talented and hard running left footer, Mason slotted straight into the Div 1 team after impressing in the pre-season trials.
No matter where he plays, he has a crack and loves nailing a good tackle but it’s Mason’s goal sense that has really caught people’s eyes.
For someone so new to competitive football he really does know how to find the big sticks and has hit the scoreboard regularly - he bagged three in a great victory this week!
Well done Mason!
Player of the Week - Dempsey (U10 Hornets)
Dempsey first joined the bombers as a 5 yr old with AusKick. Always showing passion and commitment, and last Sunday was no different.
As Captain of the under 10 Hornets he led the players from the front, with great tackling and chasing the opposition.
Then as often happens when solid players step up, Dempsey scored at the half way mark of the fourth quarter!
Showing his ‘team first' attitude he then raced to the inter change bench to give one of his mates a chance to play the final minutes.
Dempsey is always prepared to put his body on the line to get the ball and is always looking for the open player to send a kick or hand pass their way.
Dempsey is a very polite and well mannered kid who shares his enthusiasm for the game with his team mates and coaches.
Keep up the good work Dempsey!
Auskicker of the Week – Erin Fitchett (U8 Valkyries)
Erin Fitchett started playing Auskick last season and was one of the first girls to sign up to the Bombers Auskick Girls Squad.
Erin started playing Auskick because she wanted to play a team sport.
She loves playing proper games because it's so much fun!
Her favourite drill at Auskick is practice kicking for goals.
She is an avid Swans supporter and was lucky enough to play with some of her Manly Bombers teammates during half time at the Swans vs Giants game last month.
Erin was very excited to play in the first ever Girls-Only U8 Development Competition game on the weekend, where she kicked three goals. Go Erin!
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.
