Teen sensation, Tom Young, returns to Sydney University this weekend after playing a significant role for NSW/ACT Rams in their triumphant Division 2 win in the NAB AFL National Under 18 Championships.
Young was a notable performer through each of the five games played, culminating with being named second best on field in the final 37-point victory over Tasmania to clinch the title last Wednesday at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne.
Performing well along-side and against some of the best emerging talent in the country, Young is continuing to press his case to be drafted by Collingwood Football Club to whom he is scholarship listed.
Sydney University’s season is on the line this weekend. The University’s Seniors need to win at least five of its remaining six matches to cement a spot in the finals. Campbelltown won’t be an easy opponent under lights at No 1 Oval and are currently three games clear of the Students.
Young will be an exciting addition at half-back and through the midfield, for the team which has been led all year by Mark Egan, Brydon Coles and Ben Mankarious, who are all Sydney University Scholarship Holders.
