JANSEN’S LAST MINUTE MAJOR

By Peter Argent

His goal from outside the 50-metre arc in the last minute of the game ensured the first draw of the season between Central District and South Adelaide at the Ponderosa last Saturday afternoon. 
Canberra teenager Chris Jansen is one of the form players of the SANFL currently and has proved to be one of the best recruits so far this year. 
Cool and composed in traffic and having good finishing skills, over the past two weeks Jansen has produced a pair of 30 plus possession games.
“At Belconnen I spent all my playing time as a defender, mainly across half back, but Roy (Central’s coach Laird) moved me into the middle a bit more this season,” Jansen told Inside Football 
“(I) haven’t kicked too many goals in my career.
“In my three years in the seniors at Belconnen, I may have kicked a couple of goals and now in five games with the Bulldogs I reckon I’ve kicked three or four. 
“It was pretty satisfying to see that goal go through in the final minute.
“We’d rather that it was a win, but we’ll take the point,
“They are a great group of blokes and (I’m)  loving playing at the Doggies.
“AFL is still a dream on the horizon, but if that doesn’t happen, I’d love to be a 10-year player at Central District. 
“SANFL football is a real step up in standard of game from the NEAFL, especially the pace.”
Chris Jansen, now 19, is a 189cm, 83 kgs utility.
He debuted for the Belconnen Magpies as a 16-year-old and Jansen was coached by current Glenelg mentor Matthew Lokan in 2012 and 2013. 
Jansen has played representative football with the NSW/ACT Rams, with the under 18s in 2013, and under 16 program in Sydney two years earlier.
Away from football, Jansen is working for the Zorich Group Sportspower franchise, alongside club captain and fellow NSW export Trent Goodrem and he is also studying as Batchelor of applied science degree in human movement.
The sporting gene runs through the family as older sister Lauren Jansen played with the Canberra Capitals in the Women’s National Basketball League, winning national title five years ago.
