NORTH Geelong’s under-15 side capped off a near-perfect year for the club on Sunday with promotion to the Super League.
The club’s under-15 A squad capped its promotion with a 10-0 win over Melton.
They will now represent Melbourne’s west in the under-16 Super League, the state’s top junior competition.
Warriors junior co-ordinator, Joe Madunic, expects the success to attract a host of young talent to the club.
In addition to the Super League opportunities, State League one requires clubs to field and under-21 team.
“Hopefully there’ll be a lot of talk around Geelong and hopefully during summer, instead of having 15 kids trying out we might have 25 or 30,” Madunic said.
“Some of those 15-year-olds who have qualified for the Super League next year will be also playing under-21s.
“All our junior kids have got something to aspire to now.”
