WELL DONE ALEC
It was a day to remember for 13 year old Alec Kenneally on Saturday when he fronted up with Mirboo North fourths against Yinnar. Alec suffers from downs syndrome but he has always wanted to play football so Mirboo North 4ths coach Jon Oddy thought it was the perfect time to give Alec a run. Alec has been a lifelong supporter of the Tigers (Richmand and Mirboo North) and relished the chance to don a Tiger jumper for the day. Coach Jon Oddy said, "it is an opportune time to give Alec a feel of what it is like to be part of a team". "Under normal circumstances Alec wouldn't get the opportunity to play football so as a club we decided to let him be part of the team for the day", he added. Alec later scored a goal which was taped and went viral on facebook after being aired on WinTV. He was also presented with a football and medal.
