Loki Marchant on a field without a roof

June 16th, 2021

Loki Marchant has a head for heights, and the rising talent has won due reward for hard yakka with selection in the NNSW 15s boys side for the 2021 National Youth Championships.
Turning out since the age of five for the Coffs United Lions, Loki was identified early as a player of special talent, representing North Coast in the NPL sides from the 13s through to the current season in the 15s.
“We’ve got a tournament in Sydney at the end of this month to get used to playing with one another before the Youth Champs,” the Year 9 John Paul College student said.
The opportunity to go up against fellow elite youngsters is treasured – and it will be his first call-up into the State team.
“It will be a good chance to see where I’m at,” the centre back said.
And Loki will feel right at home – as the National Youth Championships will be held at C.ex Coffs International Stadium from September 19 to 24.
Self-assessment is never easy, but prodded, Loki gave some insight.
“I guess I’m pretty good in the air and reading the game.” he said.
“But I would like to work on transitions and communication more.”
At 182cm and still growing, the North Coast prodigy is keen as beans to stretch for the football ceiling.
“All the way. As far as I can. Pro, hopefully,” Loki said.
