Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 16 2008
56 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 17, 2008 Inner-West Weekly Sport Gold is Matthew's goal JESSICA CAMPION JUNIOR SPORTS STAR Matthew Lourey is this week's Junior Sports Star nominee. Picture: BRENT McGILVARY PP166420 THIS week's junior sports star has got enough talent to run his own team, but Matthew Lourey admits he would probably need just one team mate -- in the net. ''I play right half, left half, right wing, left wing, left inner and right inner,'' the 12-year-old Briars player said. ''I've tried (goalie) a few times, but I'm not very good at it.'' The Abbotsford star began play- ing hockey when he was just six years old, encouraged by family and friends. ''My brother played it and my best friend's mum played it and I watched some matches, then I thought hockey was cool, so I played it,'' Matthew said. ''I like (hockey), probably be- cause you know you're always going to get the ball in the game 'cause everyone has to pass the ball around or you get tackled.'' Matthew has been playing with the Briars hockey club for eight years and currently trains two times a week in the under-13s team. He has also just returned from competition in Albury, represent- ing Sydney East in the Primary Schools Sport Association (PSSA), and Sydney at the state champion- ships in Orange, where his junior side came third. Matthew says his parents like to travel to the meets and cheer him on, but he admits they always have another, ulterior motive for coming along. ''They like to watch me play but they come along, too, 'cause they want to go to visit all the places I go to, like Gosford and Orange.'' He's aiming for a bright future and might just be destined to score. ''I want to play for Australia,'' Matthew said. ''I look good in yellow -- it's the main colour of my team.'' Matthew is in the running to win a medal and $1000.
