Debutant Brady Cochrane has impressed in his first appearance in St Kilda colours, securing the ANZAC Day Medal in the club’s opener for the 2022 Victorian Wheelchair Football League season.

The young Saint took out the award in the development side’s loss to Richmond earlier in the day, putting together an outstanding performance in his first game of VWFL footy.

Taken with the 3rd pick in the 2022 draft, Cochrane would also appear on court in the senior side’s clash with the Tigers, alongside fellow youngster Tyler Nash, who also showed promising signs on debut.

The first-gamers were amongst nine new faces to take to the court on Sunday.

In the senior game, co-captain Ryan Smith slotted six goals as he continued his form from 2021, but the Saints found their backs to the wall against an experienced Richmond outfit, going down by 45-points.

The Saints will look to bounce back this Sunday against Collingwood, who will be equally keen to notch their first win of the season.
