Matthew Browne was also named player of Div 2.
Selections - From our U13 Boys - Riley Bambling and Matthew Browne have been selected in the U13 Boys State team to compete in Darwin in September and Annie Collins has been selected in the U18 Squad for trials in February 2016.
If any players are interested in representing Gympie at the U15 State Championships in September, please see Ben, as we are looking to start training for these teams after the July school holidays. U15 Girls have Tony Mills as coach and a Manager is now required, but we are looking for volunteers for coach and manager for the U15 Boys. See Ben if you are interested. U15 Boys will travel to Warwick and U15 Girls are on the Sunshine Coast.
If you have any queries, please see someone at the control room or Ben.
