YOUNG footballers had two AFL midfielders to guide them in an annual handball competition in Ellenbrook.

West Coast Eagle Mark Hutchings and Fremantle Docker Michael Barlow were at Woodlake Village Shopping Centre to see Charlie (Aveley Junior Football Club) and runner- up Taj (Ellenbrook Dockers) collect their prizes.

The winner now goes into the state final in September for a chance to win a family box at the WAFL grand final.

“It was a great turnout from a local area that really supports local footy,” a centre spokeswoman said.

The players also signed autographs and posed for photographs.
