Railways midfielder Zane Marwick is in line to represent his State after impressing with a best-on-ground performance for the WA State Country side in their second trial match last Friday night in Perth.

Making his debut, Marwick was awarded the match ball after the State Country squad enjoyed a 34-point win over the WA Amateur Football League under-23s at Lightning Park in Noranda.

The tireless effort in the midfield also earned the dual Kleemann medallist the recognition of WACFL player of the week.

Marwick was the fourth player from the region to be trialled in the extended State squad, which also featured Jerramungup ruckman Jayden Brooks and Newdegate forward Chris Wollaston last Friday.

Lake Grace-Pingrup midfielder Luke Bairstow played in the first trial match last month against the State under 18s.

WA Country Football League operations manager Brent Sheridan said Marwick’s name was now well in front of selectors.

“He has been a stand-out performer on the local stage for a few years now and has carried that form on at a representative level, which puts him right in the mix for further State honours when the side travels to South Australia later this year,” he said. “A solid Landmark carnival will put his name right up there for selection.”
