Woori Yallock’s new goal guru makes big impact in Premier Division

The goals have been flowing for Woori Yallock this season.

And it’s been a new focal point leading the charge, with Taylor Gibson firing off 22 goals in four games.

The former Kilcunda Bass spearhead kicked eight goals in the opening round and has followed up with bags of 4, 6 and 4.

Gibson was named best afield as the Tigers beat reigning premiers Wandin 14.15 (99) to 12.16 (88) on Saturday to remain unbeaten at 4-0.

New Woori Yallock coach Brendan Donovan says Gibson, a Woori Yallock junior who has returned to the club, has “been awesome”.

“His practice match form was even better, he kicked nine from centre half-forward against South Belgrave,’’ he said.

“And five or six against Cranbourne the next week so he’s been fantastic, a big focal point, it’s been great.

“He’s a big presence. Sometimes we’re able to get it in quicker but even with slow play he’s still really strong.”

Woori Yallock has been fuelled by a raft of impressive performers this season. Josh Neal has kicked 11 goals and been team orientated. Kane Thompson, Blake Muir, Angus Smith, Oscar Simpson and Bradd Arnold have also started the season strongly.

Liam Odea played his first game of the season on Saturday.

“It’s been a really even month of footy,” Donovan said.

“We’re still a fair way off our best side. We’ve had six or seven of our best team out

“We’ve got quite a few to come back in over the next few weeks.

“That’s been the really pleasing bit, winning a couple of those games with seven or eight of our arguably our best 12 players out.’’

Jordy Williams, Robbie Allen, Jacob Aitchison, Luke Boontjes and Jack Ryan, Baylin Spencer will bolster the Tigers in coming weeks.
