Putting footy skills to test in South Africa

It has been a successful year for the 15-year-old Swan Christian College student, who recently represented WA at the School Sport Australia AFL Championships in Darwin going through to the finals but falling short against South Australia.

The team paraded with their silver medals at Subiaco Oval before the WAFL grand final last month in honour of their achievement.

Nugent plays club football for the Ellenbrook Junior Football Club and is a member of the East Perth Football Development Team.

He was also recognised as the highest achieving player at Ellenbrook Junior Football Club during the 2013 football season, receiving the Neville Williams floating trophy.
