Junior Reps Team to play NSWFA Subaru Series Grand-Final

The Peninsula Youth Team has become the first Peninsula Thunder Club team to make it into a New South Wales Floorball Association Grand Final. This Saturday 5th April the Youth team will take on the Northern Beaches team at All Sorts Sports Complex in Alexandria at 11.00am.

In the last round on the 22nd March the Youth team finally defeated the Northern Beaches team 9 – 1. There have been a lot of close matches in the last 2 years against the Northern Beaches club but the Youth team have always fallen short in the last period of the games.

The Youth team continues to improve with every match and hopefully will have extra confidence going into the Grand Final with being able to beat Northern Beaches in their last match.

The Peninsula Youth team take a strong line-up into the Grand Final.
The team is : Patrick Delaney – goalkeeper
Steven Collins – goalkeeper
Saige Engelbrecht – defender
Nicholas Delaney – defender
Madison Boland – defender
Nicholas Clunes – defender
Miguel Cullen-Green – centre
Reece Wallace – centre
Jack Nash – forward
Thomas Laznik – forward
Andrew Laznik – forward
Emma Brandham – forward
Alex Tuthill – forward
Alec Morison – forward
Zane Drennan – forward
Lucas Carpenter – forward

Unfortunately the team will be without Claudio Lucini who scored the first 2 goals against Northern Beaches in the last match.

New South Wales Floorball Association are in the process of appointing a NSW Under 19 co-ordinator to start training young up and coming players in NSW. It is hoped a number of the Peninsula Youth team members will make this Squad. This Squad training will take the players to the next level of playing Floorball, with the possibility of one day representing Australia.

The Australian Men’s Under19 team will play New Zealand in October in play-off matches for the World Championships. The Under 19 Mens World Championships will be held in Helsingborg, Sweden starting on the 29th April 2015.

We wish all players the best of luck.
