Collingwood Magpie turned Redland-Victoria Point Shark Peter Yagmoor eyes senior premiership

REDLAND-Victoria Point Sharks have star power in their ranks as they hunt down a QAFL premiership this season.

Former Collingwood Magpie Peter Yagmoor has played several games for the merger club this season and says he has enjoyed every minute of the experience.

"Just being healthy and playing is the main thing," he says.

"I have met a lot of people along the way through multiple teams that create those good friendships.

"The main goal is to win a senior premiership.

"That would be the highlight if I can get there."

Yagmoor played two games for Collingwood during his three-year stint at the club.

Despite fond memories, the high-flyer says he is fifty-fifty on pushing for a return to the professional arena.

"It is a day-by-day thing," he says. "When I am sitting down watching footy, I think 'oh yeah, I'd love to be out there.'

"Other times I am happy what I am doing, working nine to five and chilling with the mates on the weekend with footy."

Redland Bombers and Victoria Point Sharks merged ahead of the 2021 season.

It came after the NEAFL competition - which featured teams from Queensland, New South Wales, ACT and Northern Territory - was scrapped.

Yagmoor says being back in the QAFL is a breath of fresh air.

"We are not flying every second week, and just those little things play a part," he says.

"I think it's my sixth year (at the club), so I was there when they were through the NEAFL and what not.

"It's a good family club.

"The support and people there are amazing and the playing group is as well.

"It's just an enjoyable place to be."

Yagmoor says kids with dreams of making it to the top level should think about how they approach their game.

"Don't get caught up in football," he says.

"Take it seriously when you need to but really enjoy it.

"Go out there, have fun and enjoy it with your mates.

"Your talent and all that stuff will come."
