The Benalla Young Sportspersons Trust alongside Benalla Saints Football Netball Club are jointly supporting local footballers Josh Jose and Tyreece Rhodes-Orton at the AFL National Inclusion Carnival.

The tournament, to be played on the Gold Coast between July 24 and 30, sees athletes with an intellectual disability compete to bring glory home for their state.

Benalla Young Sportspersons Trust chairman Bill Sykes, and Benalla Lions Club president Peter Poels, who are long-time supporters of the trust, recently caught up with Tyreece and Josh to wish them well before the tournament.
