Joeys on the hunt for players

NEW St Joseph’s senior women’s coach Angus Kramer is keen to add some more numbers to his list ahead of this year’s AFL Barwon season.

Joeys have suffered some off-season losses and Kramer is hoping to attract another 5-10 players to Drew Oval.

“It’s to have the reassurance that if we have injuries we’ve got enough (players),” he said.

“The girls had a lot of injuries last year and even with a big squad still struggled some weeks to put a full squad on the park.

“At this moment we should have enough for a full side, but there’s not a lot of insurance if we got some injuries.”

Kramer has arrived at St Joseph’s after a number of years coaching junior boys teams at Geelong Amateur, including taking Ammos to the under 19 Division 2 title in 2018.

He says a new challenge coaching women was hard to go past.

“Not that I was sick of coaching juniors but having the success I did last year, I thought it would be a nice changeup,” Kramer said.

“When this offer came up in what is a growing field, I thought it was a great opportunity to get onboard.”
