Footballers from all seven Lower South West Football League teams will represent the region at the Great Southern Colts Carnival this weekend.

Following on from last year’s grand final win, 25 players aged 15-19 from teams across the league will make their way to Kulin this weekend.

They will compete against the best footballers from Esperance, the Goldfields, the Upper Great Southern, Peel, the Wheatbelt and Ongerup.

Coach Josh Rayson said the carnival gave the players an opportunity to test themselves against the best players in the State.

“There are a lot of players who have put a great deal of effort into being a part of the team representing the LSWFL,” he said.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for the guys.

“This is one age group where you want to give them an opportunity to play against different associations.

Rayson said the carnival also gave younger players something to look forward to and would strengthen the association.

“It’s really great to see a squad of players so enthusiastic about representing the region,” he said.

The LSWFL play Esperance first up and the finals will be played on Sunday.
