Mr Excitement has Valleys fans yelling in support

WINDSOR Bowie only arrived in Gladstone six months ago, but he is already a household name on the sidelines of football fields.

When the 18-year-old gets the ball, kids scream his name in support and hold their breath as his scoots across the turf.

Bowie is originally from the very top of Australia, Cape York, and followed his older brother to the region for work and the prospect of playing football.

"My brother brought me down here. He plays for Valleys but he hurt both his knees," Bowie said.

Windsor is on fire crossing for four tries against Tannum this weekend alone, and is confident that Valleys have what it takes to claim this year's premiership.

"I reckon we are going all right," he said.

"We have a good mind and I think this year is going to be ours," Bowie said.

For now, Bowie will continue to use his speed and agility to put points on the board for Valleys, and could be a big part of the action come finals time.
