BIG V 2019 - MEN'S YOUTH LEAGUE TEAM

After two tough foundational years our Youthies will be looking to make their mark in 2019 under new head coach Matt Funston and assistant coach Tim Annett . With a lot of the boys having gone through the successful CBL season under Tim they will be primed and eager to improve this season.

Lots of new faces join the more familiar Wallan Juniors to form what will no doubt be a more competitive, although still inexperienced, group. Early preseason form suggest scoring wont be an issue and fans can expect a very attractive and exciting brand of Basketball.

Expecting to be making their mark this year will be the rising stars Izzy Mahinay, Campbell Walker, Dion Stacey, Seb Villegas and Lachie Rae. They join the familiar group with the likes of Captain Brad Butler, Cam Creasey, James Metaxotos, David Barron and Viktor Casupanan returning. Ex Junior Adam Gatt slots in as does current juniors Jayden Obrien, Harry Walker and Evan Scodellaro Rounding out the squad is some new talent in Jonas Busano, who heads straight into the leadership group, James Riego, Tasman Harvey and lastly Gavin Whitfort joins from Seymour.

Internal expectations are high but they are still on a steep learning curve. We can expect this season to be very watchable and fun to get behind, knocking on the door come the end of the season would be a great step forward for the boys. But who knows what they might be capable of.
