Star Tiger takes flight

COLAC has suffered a blow in its bid to go one better than last year’s runner-up finish with the departure of Campbell Floyd.

The Colac Herald is reporting the star defender will head to country Western Australia where he will link-up with former Geelong AFL listed player Timm House at Gnowangerup, 355km southeast of Perth.

“I’d become pretty good mates with Timm House at Geelong and he sort of offered me a job where he’s from on the farm,” Floyd said.

“We spoke at the end of 2019 and it’s a big move, so I had to have a big think about it because it’ll be a different lifestyle.

“It’s about four hours out of Perth, so I’ll just be playing in the local league.”

Floyd played 28 VFL games for the Cats before returning full-time to Colac for the 2019 season, earning selection in the GFL Team of the year.

MEANWHILE, Newtown & Chilwell has reportedly signed Ovens and Murray young gun Tyler Spencer.

Spencer arrives from Corowa-Rutherglen, the same club which provided the Eagles with Will Robinson and Jy Lane.

He represented the Ovens and Murray in last year’s AFL Victoria Community Championships.
