Dad’s dream comes true

It was a special day for Matt ‘Jok Bok’ Boyd when he received a surprise call-up to the senior side for Blighty, which meant he would line up alongside his 15 year-old son Jake on Saturday.

The Redeyes were forced to make a late change, opening up the opportunity for the bloke known as Jok Bok.

‘‘It was definitely a last minute deal and for some reason they picked me,’’ Jok said.

‘‘I thought that when Jake played his first senior game a couple of weeks ago it was my proudest day in footy, but to line up alongside him was just so exciting.

‘‘I’m still on cloud nine from it all but my form doesn’t warrant another senior game anytime soon,’’ he said with a laugh.

‘‘I can’t thank Daniel Kirchen and the club enough for making this happen.’’
