Clark to lead WA

Subiaco’s Greg Clark has achieved a fair bit in his short football career.

The young midfielder has been awarded two scholarships to the Australian Institute of Sport, played senior WAFL football, represented his state and now has a chance to lead WA into a State Championship.

Yesterday Clark was selected captain of the WA U18’s after impressing at training camp and the youngster was delighted to lead the black and gold.

“It was a bit of a surprise and a total honour to be named captain of the West Australian U18’s State side. I’ve been training as hard as I can between the Subiaco seniors and WA state squad so it really is an honour.” Said Clark

Clark was selected into the WA U18’s side for the second year running but was also acknowledged for his exponential growth to be named captain.

Clark hopes to show the rest of the country that West Australia can play in June.

“The goal with the championships is development; so that’s usually the focal point of training and playing. But everyone is competitive and we’re also focused on showing how legitimate West Australian Football is.  It’s just about finding the balance between progress and competitiveness,

We’ve got a really versatile, talented bunch of guys and were looking forward to showing what we can do against the best in the country,

I feel WA often gets over-looked and under-rated at state championships so were hoping to get some wins, enjoy the experience and develop as players. “ said Clark

Greg Clark gets a kick off for the Subiaco colts in 2013

The 18-year old has come leaps and bounds over the last three years, bursting onto the scene as a physical midfield presence in 2013 for the colts.

Clark came second in the Taylor medal for the colts best and fairest in 2014 despite missing a handful of games and was elevated onto the senior list over the off-season.

This year Clark has averaged 17.5 disposals from four games and looked comfortable amongst the big bodies.

“I’m focusing on developing as much as I can as a player, person and leader. It’s on me to work hard and grow from these experiences.”

Greg Clark’s name has also been thrown around as a possible AFL draftee; but the youngster is adamant on staying focused.

“You see how often guys get sidetracked or find pit-falls when looking too far into the future. It was eye opening to see this happen to a handful of guys at the Nationals last year.

“Even though AFL football is something I’ve dreamed of every day since I was little, I know the only way to get there is through hard work so I’m focusing on every day as it comes.” Said Clark

Clark and the sandgropers will face South Australia this Saturday at Lathlain Park as the U18 Nationals commence.
