An interstate recruit and a junior debutant have featured in Alvie’s sixth football win from seven starts.
The second-placed Swans unveiled Tasmanian Finbar Wray-McCann and junior Clay Jenkin during their come-from-behind, 12.14 (86) to 4.8 (32), triumph over the Western Eagles on Saturday.
Alvie assistant coach Angus Uwland said Wray-McCann’s signing was timely after Spencer Williamson suffered a season-ending knee injury, while he praised teenager Jenkin’s introduction to senior footy.
“(Wray-McCann’s) over from Tassie and he’s working with an ex-Alvie fella in Melbourne,” he said.
“He’s managed to come and have a kick with us, I haven’t seen a lot of him yet, but he’s played good footy in Tasmania.
“He’s about six-foot-two and a key defender; he’ll be a good replacement for Spencer.
“It was also exciting for Clay to debut, he’s been an Alvie junior all the way through, he played as a defensive forward on the flank and he created some opportunities as well.”
