SEYMOUR were simply, too fast and too slick for the Euroa senior side at the weekend’s match in Euroa.

The game began in a frenetic fashion with captain Andrew Bell signalling his intention to lead from the front having a productive first quarter.

He was almost flying solo in this respect though despite the hard work from defenders such as Marcus Varley and Adam Tarrant.

Anthony Long was moved onto one of the dangerous Seymour forwards after quarter time with great effect – being Euroa’s best player for the day as a wash-up.

Up forward Brad Cunningham was again giving his opposition quite a few headaches while James Milne showed the class many knew he is capable of with his explosive leading and accurate kicking for goal – finishing the day with four majors himself. 

Younger brigade players such as Nate Trotter, Jett Trotter and Tom Burke were making their presence felt – particularly after half time as the Euroa Magpies matched it with Seymour in response to coach Gilliland’s pleas to slow the play, control the ball and be deliberate in their intent.
