Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

Many of you may not be aware that Aireys Inlet actually has two junior football teams.

The Aireys Inlet Eels consists of under 10’s and under 12’s, which next season will be changed to under 11’s and under 13’s.

Locals were brimming with pride after last week’s AFL Rookie Draft in which our first Eels player was drafted.  Our area is currently well represented with Patrick Dangerfield and Jack Steven, both being local boys, but they pre-dated the formation of the Eels.

Josh Jaska was taken as the Gold Coast Sun’s first pick (pick 2).  Josh played a total of 75 games for the Eels and kicked 12 goals.

We wish Josh luck and will watch his progress with interest.
