Tall target: Brad MacKinnon who played in the Wagga competition last season will be a tall target for fellow Saints players this season.

The Young Saints Australian Football club have set themselves some lofty goals for the 2016 season.

After finishing near the bottom of the ladder in 2016 Saints president Derek Mayhew said the club would not be satisfied with anything less than a final four finish.

“Our senior men's side looks good on paper with quality players like Ethan Cummins and Justin Kelly signing up again and looking like they will have a successful season,” he said.

“We have a few new players such as Brad MacKinnon who will be handy signing.

“MacKinnon was originally from Coolamon and played in Wagga competition last season, he has a lot of talent as do a good portion of our returning players, so I think our goals are to play finals footy.”

Mr Mayhew said the club wants to grow their player numbers in auskick, under 12's, under 14's girls and boys.

“We encourage all interested people to give our game a go, we would like parents to get involved in the club to help make our club a strong family club.”

Mayhew said the Saints decided on a dual senior coach set up for 2017.

“Justin Kelly and Ian Callaghan will run the team,” he said. “The Senior men's players guernsey will be new thanks to sponsors, Young hotel, Tyrepower, Tri mech, BFC maintenance, k@k Forde, Young motors and Harden fuel supplies.”
