Footballers on the front foot for R U OK Day fundraiser



Reservoir confident a mix of youth and experience will help it challenge for this year’s NFL Div 3

LAST year, a dynamic forward mix capable of carving opposition defences to pieces helped Thomastown secure the Northern Football League Division 3 premiership.

Reservoir is confident it has found a mix that will prove just as lethal up forward as it prepares for an assault on the 2015 flag, with Ash Flavel and David McGregor leading a dangerous attacking arsenal.

The Mustangs had 11 goalkickers in their 93-point win over Heidelberg West on Saturday, with McGregor, Flavel and Leigh Sullivan combining for 14 goals.

Reservoir coach Ross Terranova said the club was confident it had found the right mix of experience and youth across the ground.

“I think we’ve got a good mix this year and there is quite a few blokes that are experienced that have been around the club for the last few years plus we’ve brought some new blokes in,” Terranova said.

“We’ve certainly got a good mix and the young blokes coming through.

“In the four years (I’ve coached), we’ve probably got our best mix in our side at the moment.”

Reservoir sits third after Round 14 ahead of its clash with St Mary’s this weekend.
