“Eleven members of the team were from Singleton including our co-captains Lilly-Jane Williams and Amalie Ford and recent NSW All Schools stars Alex Neyland and Molly Thomas.

“I want to thank my team manager Sarah Williams and team runner Daltyn McCartney for their efforts as well.”

Fellow Singleton Roosters coach Ashley Borg also celebrated a narrow one-point win over Hunter Metro in Youth Girls 13 competition to finish with a 1-1-2 record.

Both of the Under-17 and Under-13 Hunter Country line-ups were also winless however those within the sides enjoyed the calibre of footy on display.
