Rowan Brookes - A Player to Watch

During season 2009 unfortunately Ballajura missed out on seeing Rowan Brookes in our under 17's home and away games as Rowan was selected in East Perth Colts and spent most of 2009 with East Perth. Again, before the start of the 2010 season Rowan is already finding success by being selected first in the East Perth League squad for a pre season game and now back with EP Colts and already, Rowan is receiving recognition being best on ground in last weeks game.

And now the news which does not come as any surprise, Rowan has now been confirmed as selected in the WA STATE 18's SQUAD for 2010 with the first game in Colonial Stadium, Melbourne with further games in NSW and South Australia.

Rowan, and the Brookes family have been with the club for many years with all three brothers Mitchell, Rowan and Sam starting in Ballajura Auskick and have never missed a season with the club. Father Jeff Brookes is now in his third year as President of Ballajura which takes up a lot of his time when we know he would love to be down watching his sons.

Congratulations Rowan and all at Ballajura will be watching your season with great interest.

A better photo of Rowan will be added shortly and, I am sure, if you print a copy Rowan will be only too pleased to sign a personal copy for you!!!
