ROCKINGHAM resident Jayson Mann returned from the National AFL Inclusion Carnival a grand final winner.

Mann (21) was in fine form during the carnival and dominated as his WA side defeated the Northern Territory 5.3 (33) to 3.1 (19) in Launceston, Tasmania.

Mann was the recipient of a City of Rockingham Travel Subsidy Grant, available to people who live in Rockingham and selected to represent their chosen activity at an accredited event held outside of WA or Australia.

City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said the City was delighted to be able to support Mann in chasing his sporting dreams.

“Through the Community Grants Program, the City aims to provide assistance to talented individuals like Jayson through the Travel Subsidy Grant process,” Mayor Sammels said.

“For Jayson, a local resident, playing a dominant role in the winning Western Australian side really is a testament to his abilities, and a credit to his football commitment throughout the year.”
