Exciting times loom large on the horizon for AFL South East’s most promising junior footballers after the Dandenong Southern Stingrays announced a 30-strong squad for the AFL Vic Country Under-16 Challenge.
Boys from the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston and Districts, and South East will join forces with a handful of new teammates from the Bayside suburbs to represent the Stingrays in a three-game series that is sure to attract plenty of attention.
This year’s games have the added focus of being played alongside the Under-18 Boys competition, the newly-branded NAB League.
The Stingrays begin their AFL Vic Country Under-16 Challenge against the GWV Rebels at Mars Stadium, Ballarat, on Saturday 23 March.
