AFL juniors set to shine in Challenge Cup

The region’s best AFL juniors will showcase their silky skills at the Challenge Cup this weekend.

The two-day tournament, featuring under-13, under-15 and under-17 boys’ and girls’ teams from AFL Hunter Central Coast, is scheduled to take place at Lake Macquarie venues Feighan Oval and Tulkaba Park on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 June.

And, due to the growth of the competition, Hunter will be broken into two regions – Country and Metro.

Hunter Country consists of players from Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Port Stephens, Singleton, Nelson Bay, Wallsend West Newcastle and Muswellbrook.

Incredibly, the Roosters from Singleton boast 15 members of the squad (of 18) in the under-13YG division, highlighting the strength of the code at the club.

Warners Bay, Cardiff and Newcastle City make up the bulk of Hunter Metro, in another positive sign for the sport in the area.

AFL Hunter Central Coast competition coordinator Lauren Francis said everyone was looking forward to the fixtures.

“This year, we’ve extended the Challenge Cup over two days and invited teams from the North Coast to join in,” she explained.

“Each side will play four games over the weekend.

“Then we’ll have a match-win ratio to find out who the successful region is.

“Thank you to all our coaches, assistant coaches, team managers and the other helpers for your hard work so far.

“Good luck.”
