Singleton teenager shines on debut

The Singleton Roosters’ senior side was also unable to match AFL Hunter Central Coast premiership contender Cardiff on Saturday in a one sided battle.

Cardiff prevailed 24.12 (156) to 2.4 (16) yet there were still a handful of memorable moments for the Roosters.

CAMERON PARK: Teenager Cameron Saunders landed a goal as one of three Roosters on senior debut against Cardiff.

The undermanned Roosters welcomed three new members to senior football in Dylan Ferris, Simione Corfe and teenager Cameron Saunders who landed a goal on debut.

First year defender Luke Draper was ruthless from start to finish, Cameron White provided many clearances while playing coach Andrew Scott proved to be his side’s best.

Earlier in the morning the Roosters’ reserve side went down 18.16 (124) to 1.3 (9) yet visiting trio Dan Tracey, Clinton Harman and Dylan Hixon found plenty of the footy in the first half.

The Roosters were best served by Brandon Partridge and Joel Deacon.

The match would also mark Partridge’s 150th club game while Clinton Capell also played his 50th.

MEANWHILE Singleton’s women’s side failed to register a score allowing Cardiff to run away with a 116-point victory.

 Key forward Brianna Howard was serviceable down back as was leader Liz Moule and ruckwoman Jamie Butters.

Tori Cowburn was named as Singleton’s best and is shaping up for another team of the year selection.
