Omeo Benambra Football club’s wonder kick, Macy Hambrook, continues to get talked about and this time Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull said it was his parliamentary colleagues who got to hear of Macy’s record breaking milestone.
Updating Parliament recently on the achievements of a number of East Gipplsand locals, the Member for Gippsland East took the opportunity to praise the feats of Macy stating, “if Gippsland gave cricket Cameron White, then I am betting that one day Macy Hambrook may well do as well as Cameron for the AFL.”
Mr Bull went on to highlight Macy’s achievements as the local teenager from Omeo who notched up 101 goals this season from just eight games, making him the first player in Australia this season to achieve this milestone.
When asked how he felt about all the media attention, Macy said “he hadn’t really thought about it much and just loves playing footy and gets to practise a lot.”
“I would like to congratulate Macy and his fellow team mates, coaches and members of the Benambra Omeo Football Club and wish everyone continued success,” said Mr Bull.
