WELCOME TO ELLERSLIE AFC
ELLERSLIE 7 NAMED IN SUBURBS NYL SQUAD
The club is proud to announce that 6 Ellerslie players plus one other who played for Ellerslie in the ACFC Youth tournament earlier this season have all been signed to play in Eastern Suburbs debut NYL season. It’s exciting for these players to have the opportunity to experience National Youth League football, and through our strong relationship with Eastern Suburbs we can continue to offer this as a player pathway!
Art Twigg (pictured above) who made 11 appearances for the EAFC 1st team this season has made the team alongside his two younger brothers, Denny and Sam who both made NRFL Reserves appearances this year and Sam also made his First Team debut in the final game of the season.
Allan McBride who starred for Ellerslie in the ACFC U17’s tournament and last year’s Napier U19’s tournament will look to cap off a brilliant 12 months with some more sparkling performances for Suburbs, another couple of lads from our 4th placed ACFC U17’s team are also selected – midfield playmaker Luke Clissold grabs his chance and Jamie Lamb who has played school mostly this season locks in his place.
Lastly we have Dylan Horgan who recently won the Ellerslie AFC Most Promising Young Player of the Year award and had his breakout season recording 12 First Team games – he captained our ACFC U17’s team this year and is in line for his third U19’s Napier Tournament this year.
Join us in congratulating them on their achievements by coming down to Michaels Ave on Sunday at 1pm to watch Eastern Suburbs NYL take on the Wellington Phoenix (potentially starring our own Keegan Smith) in the first round of the National Youth League.
