Warrnambool and District under 12 interleague coach Tim Parsons believes the next crop of junior interleague players will take the future quality of the league to a new level.

Parsons said that he had experienced these future stars first hand at interleague training and that the young boys skills had shocked him.

“When you get all the kids coming together from training alone at their local clubs and you get the top age under 12s together you can see a difference in their training out there,” he told The Standard on Wednesday night.

“The ball movement was phenomenal and it was hardly ever touching the ground, which was really impressive.

“I was overwhelmed by the skill of the kids and I’m hoping all can go well for us on Sunday.”

Parsons said the young rising stars would relish playing against some of the best junior talent in the south-west and that in-turn the league would benefit from it.

“Just to give them an opportunity to play at an interleague level will give them a bit of encouragement along the way and hopefully we can keep these kids and build a stronger league,” he said.
