Alvie second-gamer Harry Carmody is facing the prospect of spending the remainder of the football season on the sidelines after an injury blow on the weekend.
The rising star reportedly broke a collarbone during the Swans’ 21.10 (136) to 5.9 (39) win against Otway Districts.
Carmody made his debut against ladder leader South Colac last weekend and held his spot in the line-up to take on the Demons in round 10, slotting his first senior goal before his setback late in Saturday’s contest.
Alvie assistant coach Angus Uwland said it was a devastating blow for the talented under-18 footballer.
Meanwhile, South Colac selectors have shown full faith in their young talent during the Roos’ win over Irrewarra-Beeac, with teenager Lewis Daffy the latest player to make his senior debut for the club.
Daffy came into the team for Saturday’s 15.15 (105) to 4.5 (29) victory following Mick Embrey’s late withdrawal due to illness.
Daffy joined a host of young Roos in the side; Aidan Barrow, 13 senior games, Seb Hay, six, Josh Stoddart, four, Bailey Lingard, three, and Cody Downard, two.
