COLTS LOOK TO CONSOLIDATE SECOND PLACE
This week the Western Magpies Colts play their Round 6 catch up match vs Surfers Paradise at 11 am on Saturday at Chelmer. A home game for the young Pies, the match was rescheduled due to the Seniors trip to Toowoomba a fortnight ago and will be the only game of non youth football at Chelmer this Saturday.
The Colts are looking to consolidate on last week's pleasing win against the Broadbeach Cats by putting in a good showing against the Demons. The Pies will be boosted by the return of Tristan Dowdy and Sam Hartog from a 2 week stint in the Reserves where they acquitted themselves well and Hamish Campbell, all to the backline, and are looking forward to having the pacy Abdullah Haddad running amok in the forward line.
The midfield has been in good form lately and it's hoped that they can continue to build on this solid start to the season. By working hard and getting their starting points right, the group will give themselves every opportunity to spread from the contest and move forward. Forwards Jacob Sheath, Jordan Bonney and Jack Austin have been in fine form of late and the addition of Finn Collison down forward has added an extra avenue to goal for the young Pies team.
Maintaining concentration and intensity around the ball will continue to be a focus for the Magpies as they look to consolidate a top two spot this week. Ensuring that they remain in the game and stick to structures regardless of the circumstance has been a major focus at training over the last few weeks.
With no Senior football this week and a short break for some of our representative players, the Colts have close to a full list of players to choose from for the weekend. An enviable position to be in, the importance of training well and performing on game day is starting to set in as competition for spots starts to heat up.
The Magpies will be confident of victory against the last placed Demons and a win will consolidate second place on the ladder, 4 points clear of the third placed team.
This is the only Western Magpies match for the weekend so the Colts are hoping for a good crowd at home at Chelmer as they look to continue their good run of form.
