DALYSTON footballer Matthew Schreck is trying his luck at the higher level and has signed with West Adelaide in the SANFL for next season.
The talented winger from Wonthaggi has been a key member of Dalyston’s senior side for the past three years since making his debut as a 16 year old.
He started to explore his options in the SANFL this year and Dalyston teammate and former West Adelaide player Brad Fisher helped him get to West Adelaide.
The 19 year old said he is excited about the new opportunity.
“I’m stoked. I don’t really know anyone but I’ll get to know people through footy,” he said.
Matthew will live with his mother Carol in the Adelaide suburb of Cheltenham and the club is helping him to find work in the area.
He will be trying to emulate the form that saw him named in the Alberton Team of the Year when he pulls on the boots for the Bloods next season.
“Hopefully I can play some good footy,” he said.
“I’ll be playing on the wing because one of their wingers retired.”
Playing in the SANFL is a great stepping stone to the AFL and Matthew has his eyes set on that dream.
“Hopefully I can get there,” he said.
“My pace, pressure and my left foot is pretty good so hopefully that works.”
Matthew will relocate to Adelaide on November 1 to begin preseason training with the club on November 10.
