2023 AFLNZ Premiership Draws in some exciting new talent

Registrations for the upcoming AFLNZ Premiership are underway and already there are some exciting talent prospects putting their name forward for the draft.

Cam Howison

Cam began his AFL journey through the AFL Kiwikick Programme under tutelage of Falcons Assistant Coast Justin Davies around 2015, and has been around the Eagles club in the background for a few years now. He made his senior team debut last season but has been involved with the training group since 2019.

He plays as a small forward and has great awareness of space and good composure with footy in hand. His skills and his reliability as a goal kicker, will make him a key asset for the 2023 season. Ideally, Howison will transition into a player that can move up the ground into a mid field role in the future.

Cam comes from a rugby background, playing as a first five during his time at St Bedes College. He was selected in both Level 1 and Level 2 AFLNZ Academy teams and played one game in 2019.

Howison will be a strong candidate for the Under 18 New Zealand Falcons Tour of Melbourne in late April 2023.

Aiden Brown

The talented 19 year old moved to New Zealand from Melbourne earlier this year and has quickly made himself a key component to the Waitakere Magpies success early on in the 2022 AAFL Season.

Aiden played for the Ashburton Redbacks junior Football Club for 10 years and also played representative footy for the Yarra Junior Football League.

As a small that runs hard at every contest, that comes his way and an accurate kick, he currently leads the Magpies Golden boot award with over 15 goals. Aiden is ready to set the 2023 AFL New Zealand Premiership competition on fire when makes his debut in February.
