Natimuk United Auskick footballer Archie Stockdale, as round-10 NAB AFL Auskicker of the Week nominee, was on the sidelines at Marvel Stadium for a chat with sports commentator Hamish McLachlan.
Archie, seven, said it was ‘very cool’ that he was chosen to be Auskicker of the Week.
“I was at Marvel Stadium when Essendon versed Hawthorn, but it was shown during the game that Carlton played Sydney,” he said.
“I barrack for Essendon, and I play Auskick at Natimuk.”

Archie, who attends Horsham West and Haven Primary School, is in the running for $5000 and Joel Selwood and Katie Brennan to be his footy mentors in 2023.
“I am going to be in the AFL grand final parade and I have a pretty good chance at $5000,” he said.
“If I won the money, I would probably go to a few AFL matches and have a one-on-one training session with Archie Perkins. He is my favourite player.”
NAB AFL Auskickers are selected to be weekly nominees for their dedication, enthusiasm, teamwork and passion.
The prize also includes presenting a medal to a premiership player.
