We would like to formally introduce our recruits for season 2018.
Lachie turns 22 next month & like Jordy & Kieren, he is tall and extremely athletic who can play in multiple positions. The past 2 seasons have been interrupted with soft tissue injuries but when he’s up and going, he can be a great addition either in the ruck, midfield or on the wing. Lachie played at Beaconsfield FC this season and prior to this played senior football with Upper Gully FC as an 18 year old.
Kieren is the twin brother of Jordy and like his appearance, his football playing resume matches his brother at both Beaconsfield and VFL level. Outstanding defensively on tall or small forwards, he’s a nightmare for any forward opponent and hates losing. Extremely athletic like his two brothers, Kieren can play in multiple positions and his training standards and professionalism will be huge attributes to the group.
Buckets is a 29 year old 6’5 key forward who was a former AFL pick 6 with the Hawthorn FC. After his AFL career, Beau has captained Sandringham in the VFL, won a Division 1 premiership with Noble Park FC and played with the Beaconsfield FC.
Our former co-coach has come back after a stint at EDFL 1st Division team Doutta stars. Previous to this Jono had experience at both VFL and EDFL first division levels. Jono’s two season’s at The Basin included playing in our grand final team and co-coaching. Jono already made his mark on our club with his ability to raise the training standards and professionalism of the group around him.
Dano has a decade of senior football experience as a midfielder with the Noble Park FC and more recently with the Beaconsfield FC. The ultimate professional in the way he trains and prepares himself, his experience and leadership will be a great addition to our midfield group next season. Highly skilled, Dano’s ball use will have our forwards salivating when he has possession and running forward of centre.
Jordy is a 24 year old who joins us from the Beaconsfield FC where he played the last 2 seasons. Prior to this, he was in the VFL system for 5 seasons with both the Northern Blues & Casey Scorpions. Jordy is an outstanding defender who has also played roles through the midfield and up forward. Extremely competitive, Jordy’s experience and professionalism with be of great benefit to our young playing list.
We welcome all our recruits and their families to The Basin FC in what is shaping up to be an exciting 2018. When you see them round the club introduce yourself and welcome them to The Basin FC!
