If you don’t have plans on Sunday, head on down to Metricon Stadium to watch the QLD U/18’s side take on Tasmania at Yeronga in their final game of the NAB AFL National Championships at 11am.
This will be a cracker of a game to watch, and you will get to see young Magpie Will Fletcher lacing up the boots for the QLD U/18 side.
Will is a Magpie junior through and through, starting his football in the Sherwood U/14’s only a few years back and instantly showing a natural ability for the game, despite being a late starter.
Showing poise, balance and superb agility – Will has mixed his obvious natural talent with a strong work ethic, persistence and eagerness to learn to lift his game to the level required for State U/18 selection, despite having another year up his sleeve in this age group.
Will was a part of the Undefeated Sherwood U/17 Div 1 Premiership side in 2015, and despite being just 180cm, is great in the air and loves to take the odd ‘hanger’. He is a versatile player, but is best when running through the midfield or off half back.
A product of the Magpies club based academy, his game has developed strongly as he progressed through to the Lions Academy and now in to the State U/18 side. Everyone at the Magpies wishes him well on the weekend, and congratulate him on his efforts thus far.
