Kaylee makes it to Coast Squad
RISING star Kaylee Kimber (pictured right) has made it into the Gold Coasts Under 17s Squad.
The 17-year-old Moranbah Bulldogs AFL player had been a netball player before trying AFL and as soon as she hit the field it was apparent: she was a natural.
Senior Ladies Moranbah Bulldogs coach Tim Davis was instantly wowed by her skills and her attitude – what makes it more impressive is the fact that this is Kaylee’s first year playing.
“This attitude towards sports will take her to so many places,” Tim said.
“I have been lucky enough to coach her this year and saw straight away that she was going to make an impact.”
If Kaylee can make it past this round, she will make it to Gold Coast squad to play against the Brisbane Lions.
Kaylee isn’t the only one to reach this milestone,
Alana Gee who plays for the Saints, and Indi- ana Brough from Bakers Creek have also be named in the squad.
Winners of the comp will face the Brisbane Lions.
Kaylee’s Mother and fellow player, Chrissey, said she was “very excited” for her daughter to be picked for the Gold Coast side.
“Pretty amazing for only playing for six months she started with netball and has come across to AFL and she has done fantastically,” Chrissey said.
“I can’t wait to see where this takes you and have no doubt you will continue working hard to reach all your goals footy and non-footy related!” Tim said.
