DAVIDHaynes will hunt footballers in their early 20s to strengthen Panmureduring the Warrnambool and District league off-season.
Haynes said he was pleased with the Bulldogs’ campaign but disappointed they dropped early-season matches which hindered their finals aspirations.They have a 7-10 record entering Saturday’s last-round fixture against Russells Creek.
“Everyone wants gun players but realistically I think we need to get some players between the 22 and 26 age mark who can get around the ground,” he said.
“We’ve got to look after our own, too. We’ve got a couple of young guysthere, the Melican boys (Sam and Kallan) who I’d love to build my team around.They’re quality players who will dominate the league if they want to.”
Haynes believed onballer Sam Mahony was the Bulldogs’ best-and-fairest favourite ahead of veteran Tim Condon.
