24 DAYS TO GO | Eastern Lions junior president David Cox spoke to EFL Media ahead of the 2019 season, all thanks to Yarra Valley Water & Choose Tap.
Overall, were you satisfied with what the club achieved, both on and off the field in 2018?
David Cox: Yes we were. The players in every age group did their best and enjoyed playing. The under-13s had their best year so far. Under-17s made the preliminaries.
Approximately how many teams do you think you will field in 2019?
DC: Under-10s, under-12s, under-14s and under-17s.
What has the feeling been like around the club over the pre-season?
DC: Positive, looking forward to the new season.
If you had to pick one, which team do you think is the club’s best chance of winning a premiership this season, and why?
DC: Under-14s because they have been together for four years and this will be their fifth year together.
Is there a particular age group of players that you need as soon as possible to fill a team ahead of Round 1?
DC: Under-17s and under-9s.
