North Midlands Football League finished third at last weekend’s CBH Northern Regions Colts Carnival in Wongan Hills.

Guided by Haydn McCartney, the North Midlands boys matched it with some of the State’s best junior talent — with seven players selected for the Northern Suns All-Stars colts squad after the carnival.

McCartney said he was very proud about how his squad performed over the weekend.

“The boys were pretty good,” he said. “They were keen and rocked up to play. They played and tackled pretty hard and set the standard in pressure and tackling.

“Our little fella from Mingenew, James Vanderschuit, he was unreal all day. I thought he was one of the better players overall for the carnival.

“Kobi Simpson was really good as well, along with Riley Poultney.”

McCartney said he had fun coaching the squad and would be tracking how the Northern Suns travel at the second component of country week.

“They were an awesome bunch of lads,” he said.
