AFL NT and NT Thunder stretching the boundaries with talent pathway

Date posted: 18 April 2014

AFL NT and the newly created NT Thunder talent pathway is creating more opportunities than ever before for Territory footballers from all walks of life to further their football aspirations, with teams playing Coffs Harbour, Gold Coast, Melbourne and Canberra in the coming weeks.

'It is a fantastic opportunity now that Territorians have with the inception of the NT Thunder and now the full integration of the talent pathway into the football club structure,' said AFL NT CEO Tony Frawley.

AFL NT and NT Thunder are sending a multicultural team playing in the All Nations Cup in Coffs Harbour along with the NT Kickstart U15 team who will have a chance to be selected for the prestigious Flying boomerangs program and the World XVIII who will play in the national NAB AFL U16 competition later this year.

'This is giving more opportunity to more youth to access the talent pathway from multicultural backgrounds to our ever important remote program which are now an integral part of the AFL NT and NT Thunder talent pathway with the Remote All Stars Camp recently,' he said.

Frawley is also delighted with the progression of Women's Football off the back of the successful Women's All Stars Match recently at TIO Stadium.

'Of those ladies who participated in that match they along with others, will go into the draft for the now annual Women's AFL match between the Western Bulldogs and Melbourne Football Clubs.'
