LCFNL eyes inaugural zone carnival victory

There is plenty of interest in this weekend’s interleague competition as the Limestone Coast Football Netball League takes the field in its new strip.

The LCFNL will take on the MSEFL on Saturday at Blue Lake Sports Park at 2.50pm, with the side coached by Millicent player coach Tom Renzi.

Renzi has had plenty of experience coaching over the years after leading Mount Burr to back to back premierships in 2016 and 2017 in the MSEFL, as well as being a part of the coaching staff for Milicent during their three-peat premiership seasons.

Renzi took the reins at Millicent this season, doing an exceptional job at keeping them competitive as they currently sit first on the ladder with only one defeat.

There’s no doubt he will be looking to bring that same success this weekend given the amount of talent he has to work with.

Renzi said he was still unsure how his side will stack up against the Mid South East as he knows how unpredictable footy is.

“You’re always confident with how you’d think the boys will go but its footy and anything can really happen,” Renzi said.

“Obviously both leagues have got some talented players and it’s just about how well they will gel together on the day.”

Renzi said he had been pleased with his players’ performance so far at training and liked how they had linked up to create one unit.

“To be honest all the boys have been impressive in their own way, some of the strengths of the boys might not be all the same and we spoke about that as a group and it’s important they bring their own individual skill set and if they do then we will have a pretty successful side,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to watching them and coaching all of them to be honest because they’re all important players and all good in their own right.”

The final LCFNL senior and junior teams will be announced tonight at South Gambier Football Club.
