This Saturday sees Mitchell Park’s local rival, the Kenilworth Kookaburras, visit Moreland Avenue in what looms as a massive test for the wounded lions. Suffering a heavy loss in Round 1, Mitchell Park must show resolve and work together if we are to avoid a similar result.

Kenilworth has been very busy over the summer months recruiting a new coach, Shane Baldock, and several players from leagues all over South Australia. Reputedly getting massive numbers on the track they appear to be primed for a good season ahead.

Mitchell Park has also recruited a new coach with Colin Watkins jumping on board for season 2010. Colin has been a very successful coach at Junior and Senior level for, most recently, the ultra-professional Goodwood Saints football club. Colin has also coached internationally in the Canadian Football league. Everyone involved at the club is enthused with Colin’s appointment and his emphasis on hard work and discipline.

Round 1 saw several players miss through suspension and injury. This gave an excellent opportunity for a young player to step up and play A-Grade. 17 Year old Sam Williams (pictured, right) was such a player and he performed admirably. Copping a heavy knock to the shoulder Sammy gritted his teeth in the second half and fought his way through the pain to provide some excellent pressure and intensity. Well done Sammy!

This week Luke McDonnell, Aaron Cox, Jason Longman, new recruits Jake Platt and Craig Rayson should return providing the young Lion side with leadership and experience. Assuming everyone from Round 1 is fit and firing the team should improve and be right in the hunt against the Kookas.

Cheers and I hope to see you at the game!
