An aspiring young Hedland sports star will have an opportunity this weekend to pursue further representative honours. Port Hedland Junior Soccer Association all-rounder Brae Brittain, 12, was invited to a week of intensive training in Perth after impressing scouts as captain of the town’s under-13s country week team during the recent school holidays. That training will put Brae in front of State and national selectors, potentially opening up more opportunities for representative soccer, having already secured a spot in the WA country State team last year. HJSA president Rohan Brittain, who is also Brae’s father, said his long list of achievements made the club proud. “In 2019 Brae was awarded under-11s runner-up best and fairest for the Football West country week tournament and then this year awarded the under-13s best and fairest, which makes our club extremely proud,” he said. “Brae has been a great support and role model for our local junior soccer association, always showing up for his training sessions putting in extra sessions and his continued hand up to help out or umpire our younger age groups. “Brae is an all-rounder and Hedland Junior Soccer Association is lucky to have him representing and playing for our club.” Soccer aside, Brae has also starred for the Hedland Reds Australian Rules team, competed with the Hedland amateur swim club and the Hedland Basketball Association. Brae has signed up to the Starlight Super Swim where he will swim 32km in 30 days to raise money for the foundation next year.
