Trafalgar Victory FC Under 16 players, Rudy Garcia and Tim Cornwall, are the latest players to represent Gippsland at last month’s Victorian Country Championships played in Ballarat. The boys follow in the footsteps of recent club representatives; Haylee Murphy, Haylea Porter, Matthew Steen, Jacob Vitale and Natalie McDowall.
Rudy, who plays as a striker in both the Under 16s and Youth teams, made selection for the first time. Whilst Tim, a seasoned campaigner and experienced defender, gained selection for the fifth consecutive tournament. Under 16 squad coach Jason Reddiex would have been impressed by Rudy’s strength on the ball and his “never say die attitude”. Whilst Tim’s experience and all round class would make him a must for any GSL representative squad.
Both Rudy and Tim are TVFC success stories and role models for other juniors at the club. Their determination, work effort and perseverance to play representative football should be an inspiration for many other juniors at the club. The club acknowledges and congratulates the achievements of both players.
