Finley Neylan returned to Ocean Shores Public School this week after competing for the North Coast region in the NSW Primary School Sports Association AFL championships.

Finley had a very successful carnival playing for the North Coast AFL team. He was awarded the best and fairest award for the team having polled the most votes during the carnival. His outstanding defence, ability to get his hands on the ball and calmness under pressure were great assets to the team.

The manager of the team, Mr Barry Spry said, ‘Finley was the most consistent player and he deserved the award.’

The second and most exciting achievement for Finley was to be chosen in the NSW AFL team to play in the National Carnival later this month. This is an outstanding achievement. Finley also hopes to be selected in the NSW cross-country team later this term. He is a talented and determined athlete who has earned his success.
