Woodville-West Torrens defender Joseph Sinor says he’s relishing the opportunity to train with Port Adelaide as reward for winning the 2017 Powerade Breakthrough Player Award.
As part of his prize, Sinor not only received a $2000 cash prize and a trophy courtesy of SANFL Premier Partner Coca-Cola but also the opportunity to train with an AFL club for a week.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 23-year-0ld said his experience at Alberton was provided him with an invaluable insight into being an elite footballer.
Averaging 24 disposals having played in all 20 matches this season, Sinor revealed he nearly left Oval Avenue this time last year before being convinced by Eagles coach Michael Godden and Football Manager Luke Powell to stay despite playing just 10 Macca’s League games in four seasons.
Sinor took the most marks in the Macca’s League this season as well as going at nearly 80 per cent disposal efficiency playing a rebounding role out of defence.
An electrician by trade, the Henley Football Club product was also named in the back pocket of 2017 The Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year.
