TA Welcomes New Apprentice

We would like to welcome our newest TA member and apprentice Dylan Weger. Dylan enjoys quite a bit of football as we all do, playing and captaining sides from his home town on the Yorke Peninsula, and even playing U14’s and 15’s for Woodville West Torrens. Dylan has black, white and teal running through his veins. We hope he doesn’t clash with the Hawthorn supporting boss! Welcome to the team Dylan!
