p1036084There were many fine players on Saturday in the Georgie’s 4-1 win over Essendon Royals, but none could match the effort of midfielder Kobe Kemp.

playing against Nunawading City in a practice match.

From the first minute to the last Kobe was on the ball throughout breaking up potential dangerous attacks, defending when the need arose and setting up numerous forays for our strikers. He was also dominant in every aerial dual.

Kobe has been consistent in every match to date, but on Saturday he took his game to another level. The young Tasmanian wasn't sure how the step up to Victorian football would go, but judging by his performance on the weekend he need not have worried.

After the win on Saturday Kobe told us: "We knew it would be a tough game and we need to be at our best to get the right result.

The first half was a tough fight as we tried to take control of the game and on the balance of play perhaps we were lucky to go into the break a goal up.

We knew if we stuck to the game plan that we set out with and backed ourselves we would always have a chance. We did that and got our reward".

On our team and his new club Kobe said; "The boys are coming together really well and we are beginning to work more as a team. This was always going to take time with so many new players.

The club and it’s supporters have helped the team immensely and they have backed us at all times. It’s always great to have that sort of support and makes it very easy for the playing group and for myself personally. I have been made to feel at home both on and off the pitch.

With the support of the club, coaching group and playing group, it has made it possible for me to adapt to the quicker pace of the Victorian state league and I hope to continue improving my game and repay the faith of the club". 

Well played Kobe Kemp.
