Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 12:03 PM - by Chris Pike

Turner's all-round Swans game continues to grow

Saturday, August 10, 2019 - 8:35 AM - by Chris Pike

FRESH off kicking the winning goal for Swan Districts against the West Coast Eagles, Jesse Turner has enjoyed the chance in 2019 to spend more time as an inside midfielder and to take on more of a leadership role as his all-round game continues to develop.

Turner is one player whose role is becoming of increasing importance at Swan Districts with the black-and-whites still possessing a strong group of senior, experienced players and exciting youngsters, but it's in that middle tier that they are somewhat lacking.

While players like Tony Notte, George Hampson, Matt Riggio, Alex Howard and Steven Payne continue to lead from the front, and youngsters Denzel More, Josh Cipro, Tristen Raynor, Jiah Reidy, Lachlan Riley, Aidan Clarke, Jackson Beck, Callum Garcia, Seb Bright, Dylan Smith, Brayden Hackett and Nathan Ireland are exciting future prospects, Swans' growth must come from players like Turner.

Swans again take down Eagles

Tuesday, August 6, 2019 - 2:40 PM - by Chris Pike

SWAN Districts might be asking for more fixtures against the West Coast Eagles moving forward following Saturday's four-point win in a thrilling finish at Steel Blue Oval.

Swan Districts came into Saturday's clash at Steel Blue Oval on a seven-match losing run but that last victory had come against the West Coast Eagles back in Round 7 so the black-and-whites were hoping that the same result could occur in Round 17.

As it turned out, it was a strong and committed performance from Swan Districts and it was a six-goal second quarter that put them on their way. Swans then had to withstand a spirited Eagles fight back in the last quarter to hold on and record the 12.8 (80) to 12.4 (76) victory.

SWAN Districts' last win this season was against the West Coast Eagles so the black-and-whites will be hoping their return to Steel Blue Oval on Saturday signals an end of their seven-game losing streak.

Swans improved to a 2-5 record back in Round 7 when they defeated the Eagles last time they met and that 14-point victory meant there was reason for optimism for the black-and-whites that it could spark a run of good form.

Swan Districts hadn’t played as badly over those first seven games that only two wins to show for it suggested and breaking through for that elusive second win of 2019 had the chance to spark a run of winning form.
