VICTORIAN school boy football and cricket star Alex Keath has turned down an offer to join the Gold Coast Football Club after accepting a deal with the Victorian Bushrangers Cricket Team.
The sporting prodigy announced yesterday he would not be joining the AFL's 17th team as he plans on pursuing his dream of playing cricket for Australia.
Keath was one of 12 17-year-old footballers listed by the Gold Coast as part of the club's recruitment plan.
