19yo North Beach colt A grade footballer Ben ‘Bomber’ Clarke (pictured center in all blue) has taken out his clubs ‘Best & Fairest’ award for season 2010.

Ben turns from a North Beach ‘TIGER’ in the winter, into a North Beach ‘BLUE’ during the summer season. He has reaped the rewards of doing a speed & strength training program with Charles Riley football oval neighbours ‘North Beach Athletics’ .

“This is exactly what every footballer should do in the off season (summer), instead of going for long boring runs” said Bomber. “It has improved my speed & fitness heaps, and I have taken that with me onto the footy ground”.

His coach Paul Edmiston agrees, “Bomber is one of the hardest training athletes we have at the club (he won that award for us last season), He gives everything 110% effort. I am not surprised he has won his clubs Best & Fairest award”.

Ben is looking to improve his PB’s this season with NBA, and looks forward to another year of footy for North Beach next winter.
