Wehrman happy with top side's progress

WESTERN Pride's head senior coach Kasey Wehrman has completed eight trials and training sessions for the year.

With the next training scheduled for early January, Wehrman is pleased with his team's development.

"So far, I've been happy with the way things are going,'' Wehrman said.

"It's a little bit up and down right now before Christmas.

"We've had some injuries and guys away with work. But we'll be pushing for more of a commitment from the players in January.

It's not just about getting down there at training. We need to be able to get results.

Wehrman said he had three positions open in the top side.

"I'm still looking for a left and right winger and a central defender with a left foot,'' the former international player said.

Wehrman has focused on youth, ensuring the region's best players receive an opportunity to play at a higher level.

"That's part of the APL attraction,'' he said. "That they wanted a youthful policy.

"To be fair, if I had some older guys that came along and actually showed they could play, I wouldn't be afraid to pick them this year. But I can only pick from the guys who came down and they were technically very good.

"That's the sort of thing I was looking for.''

Western Pride's senior team is preparing for the Silver Boot pre-season in February, where one of the matches is against Football Brisbane's Premier League club Ipswich Knights.

The APL state competition is scheduled to start in March, with the Pride playing QAS first up.

Wehrman is keen to play all the local teams as part of Pride's pre-season.

Western Pride was formed from the major local clubs, through Football Ipswich.
