The South West Rocks Dockers made an impressive start to their inaugural season in the AFL North Coast competition as they defeated a gallant Port Macquarie Magpies 44-22 last Sunday.

The club opened up their campaign at home at the South West Rocks Sporting Fields and were able to earn the win on a picture perfect day for Australian Football.

The best players for the Under 11s Dockers side were Byron Naatty, James Gaddes, Will Moffat and Tom Cunningham.

The final score card saw the Dockers kick six goals and eight behinds to beat the Magpies who had three goals and four behinds.

The Dockers express their gratitude towards sponsors the South West Rocks Country Club, Coastline Credit Union, South West Rocks Cinema and the Horseshoe Bay Kiosk.

The 22-point victory has put the South West Rocks Dockers top spot on the ladder.
