Roos’ new direction


OVENS and King powerhouse King Valley will field almost a completely new A grade side this season following the departures of a number of premiership players.

Reigning Morgan Medallist Leah Kelly headlines the long list of losses for the Roos with the star mid-court player joining Ovens and Murray club Wangaratta.

Georgie Fisher (Darwin) and Natasha Healy (injured) have also left while King Valley will also be without Deanna Mawson, Olivia Szeligiewicz, Marnie Doodeward, Amy Voss and Amy Byrne.

On the flip side of one of the biggest off-season overhauls in league history, the Roos have secured former O&K players Alice Gales and Nicole Tyrell.

Tierney Bromley, Dene Warren, Amanda Cassidy and Michelle Evans have been promoted from the Roos’ lower grades while Grace Patterson and Maggie Bromley remain from last year’s A grade unit.

Having failed to secure an A grade coach for 2018, Grace Patterson has been named captain with co-captain to be named in the coming weeks.
