A CHANGE of scenery has brought success for senior Kalkee footballer Jayden Kuhne and reserves footballer Quentin Willmott of Harrow-Balmoral.
The two forwards took out the league’s goal scoring awards for their respective competitions.
Kuhne finished with 64 goals to his name in his first season with the Kees after crossing over from Dimboola. He was three goals ahead of Natimuk United’s Jaydon Stiles.
He said it has been great playing in a strong team.
“It’s been really good; it’s had its challenges down forward but it’s been good,” he said.
“Different full backs play different games so I’ve had to adapt.”

Kuhne said he was excited at the prospect of winning a flag on Saturday in the senior grand final.
“I’m really enjoying my time at Kalkee and excited for the challenge ahead of the grand final,” he said.
“Steve Schultz has been helping out and giving me a few tips.”
In the reserves, Willmott finished the year with 60 goals.
Willmott has thrived playing in a different position than what he has for the bulk of his career.
“It was a good season; I spent my whole career at full-back so it’s been good,” he said.
“I was sick of playing at full-back. I played juniors up forward and I always wanted to get back there.”

Willmott said the reserves preliminary final win against Natimuk United was a great feeling.
“It was really good and it was about time we won a final,” he said.
“We are really excited for the grand final. There’s a good feeling and we are all up and about so we can’t wait.”
