Jeremy Wilson went downin the 4-0 win over Adamstown on Sunday and was awaiting results of scans. However, it appears he will join fellow youngster Jacob Dowse and Alex Kantarovski as long-term losses for Magic because of knee damage. Kantarovski is out for the year after requiring surgery. On top of that, James Virgili will miss at least one match after dislocating his shoulder.
Bailey is yet to featurein first grade this season after missing last year because ofa knee reconstruction. He started thisyear suspended from a trial incident and has featured twice in under 20s.
** Weston will bring in former Hamilton under 20s striker Kaman Bol to boost their squad next week.
The Bears had an encouraging 2-1 loss to Charlestown on Sunday. Coach Steve Piggott said “two dumb errors” cost them but it was a “10 times better performance than against Edgeworth” the previous week. Nathan Morris (work) returns against Adamstown.

** Valentine coach Darren Sills praised the comeback of Perry Budden in the 0-0 draw with Jaffas on Sunday. In goals for the injured Scott Carter, Budden had a forgettable day in a 6-1 loss to Lake Macquarie a week earlier.
