LFNC SEEKING RESERVES COACH FOR 2020
LILYDALE PRODUCT CODY HIRST SELECTED BY SWANS
PERSISTENCE has paid off for ex-Lilydale junior, Cody Hirst.
Widely-regarded as a ball-winner with a defensive edge, great goal-sense and ball-use, the 19-year-old was selected by the Sydney Swans at pick 16 in Monday night’s AFL mid-season draft – the first of its kind since 1993.
Hirst, who has played with the Eastern Ranges since 2017, was touted as a national draft certainty in 2018 before knee and collarbone injuries restricted him to just four appearances that season.
Despite breaking Fremantle speedster Stephen Hill’s record in agility testing twice at the Rookie Me combine in 2018, Hirst was overlooked by recruiters on draft night last November.
The 180cm midfielder/flanker has returned to action in 2019, featuring in five matches for the Ranges to be named among the best in three of those.
