Round 5 Match Preview: United V Seymour


Shepparton United will be buoyed by its upset win against Tatura last week. The Demons take on one of the two teams that remain unbeaten today.

It is going to be a big challenge for the young Demons and the likes of Luke Lowden and Matt Spangher will need to have big games.

The Lions are littered with stars on every line, but especially through the midfield where the likes of Jason Cole, Ben Clifton and Brandyn Grenfell leading the way.

Up forward, Saad Saad is still contributing while they have found some other avenues to goal which makes them less predictable.

Tip: Seymour.


United has made a flying start to the new season and it has been largely due to the impact Jessie Barnes has had since crossing from Rumbalara.

She has fitted so well into the starting seven, which included some very talented girls in Bree Hanslow, Sarah Bohn and Kirsty Hommes.

Phoebe Wilson and Kara Dawes have been two other girls to be shining for the Demons this year.

On the other hand, Seymour continues to grow as a unit.

Playing coach, Laura Carland has done an outstanding job so far.

She basically started the season with a blank canvass after the departure of most of the girls who have played for the Lions in 2015-16.

Tip: United.
