McIntyre raring to go as Bulldog

 

MCINTYRE BECOMES A BULLDOG 
By Peter Argent
Tim McIntyre has decided to take an opportunity to play at the Ponderosa, donning the tri-colours of Central District for the 2014 campaign. 
In this new era of the SANFL McInytre was convinced to move to the Bulldogs after a meeting with seven-time premiership coach Roy Laird and Central District CEO Kris Grant. 
“Tim was looking for a bit of a change after being delisted and expressed a desire to spend more time in the midfield,” Grant confirmed. 
“He was good mates with (four-time Bulldogs premiership player) Ian Callinan and that certainly helped in his decision making process. 
“On the track Tim has been exceptional and in the end, I believe he thought this was the right move.” 
McIntyre is noted as a natural goal kicker, but with his strong hands and high work-rate is suited to role in the midfield rotations.     
“Tim has been outstanding so far and set an example with his professional training,” Laird explained. 
“He has a great running capacity and will compliment the rest of our midfield group. 
“A potential leader of our club in the future, he will quick become a valuable acquisition to the club.”
Born in the productive rural sporting township of Wagga, McIntyre went through the national underage programs before Dwayne Massey (the Sturt football manager at the time) convinced him to continue his football in the SANFL back in 2009. 
“I started my football with Corowa-Rutherglen Kangaroos in the strong Ovens and Murray competition,” McInytre said. 
“I debuted at A grade level with the Roos as a 16-year-old.
“I was also involved in the AFL/AIS academy, playing alongside guys like Bryce Gibbs, Tom Hawkins and Cyril Rioli.” 
McIntrye played two years of national under 18s football for the NSW/ACT Rams, and also went to Brisbane with the Under 16s side in 2004. 
One of his team mates at the Rams was Broken Hill and Crows forward Taylor Walker, a person he reunited with during his brief team at Adelaide. 
There were also a couple of seasons with the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup competition as well. 
Team mates at the Bushrangers include ruckman Ben McEvoy and key position player Ben Reid.
After a couple of good seasons at Unley, McIntyre was recruited by the Crows in the 2012 Rookie Draft, with their selection at number 41. He made his AFL debut in Round 15, 2012, against Port Adelaide at Football Park in Showdown XXXIII, kicking a couple of goals, but lost his spot to his mate, Callinan. 
While that was his only opportunity at the highest level, he was a consistent performer for the Double Blues. 
Now 24, with plenty still left in his football career, McIntyre is looking forward to his challenges at Central’s in this new era of the SANFL.
“My body is ready to go,” McIntrye explained. 
“I’m keen to prove myself at a new club that has a strong culture. 
“Roy (senior coach Laird) and I clicked for the first meeting.
“He is a straight down the line character, and his attitude is second to none, demanding the best from his troops.  
“It is easy to see his passion and desire to get the best out of his players.”
