Laura goals under pressure

Laura (U10 Silver) Club MVP: Round Two

The Sydney Swans are holding a weekly Club MVP competition, asking each junior Club to nominate a weekly MVP for our Club. The MVP could be a player, an official or volunteer around the grounds. If our entry is selected, the nominee wins four tickets to a Swans game.

Our nominee for Round Two is Laura from U10 Silver. Laura made her AFL debut last year, so this is her second season playing AFL with Drummoyne Power.

Laura LOVES her footy. She is a die-hard Swans supporter and constantly has a football in her hands, practising drills that Coach Tim sets for the team each week.

After a quiet game in Round One, Laura hit her stride in Round Two, scoring two goals in the first quarter and being in the thick of the action for the whole game. What a confidence boost! She received the Coach’s Team Player of the Week award for her efforts.

Coach Tim says Laura “posesses, and indeed this week kicked her running goals off, a booming ‘Buddy-like’ left boot”.

“Laura very regularly contributes this strongly... Laura is also a coach’s dream in terms of her approach to learning the game and developing her skills,” he said.

As well as playing for U10 Silver this year, Laura has been invited to play in our Youth Girls U14 competition and she’s said she’s willing to give it a go. If this weekend’s form is anything to go by, she’ll be amazing!

Congratulations, Laura, you’re our Club MVP nomination for Round Two.
