Two of the brightest junior AFL stars from the Byron Bay area are off to southern NSW after being chosen in representative sides to play in the State AFL Under 12s championships.
Fergus Biggin-Johnston from Byron Bay Public School was chosen to represent the North Coast Public Schools (NSWPSSA Championship) from a large pool of hopeful players. Fergus plays for the Byron Bay Magpies Under 12s.
Riley Buckland, who goes to St Finbarrs, is also a talented Byron Bay Magpie Under 12 player who has been given the honour of playing in one of the two Catholic School representative sides for the whole of NSW – the team is called Polding.
Both Riley and Fergus will travel together with their fathers to Barooga, in southern NSW, but will play in different teams once there.
Expect to see these lads playing for the local Gold Coast Suns AFL in the future sometime.
