It has been a busy few weeks of pre season since the Christmas break. Check out our latest signings. Pictured is Mitch Vandenberg from North Launceston.
Following the agonising defeat to Williamstown in the 2014 semi final the club was determined to keep its promising young list together for 2015.
With a group of players in varying stages of their own development, the club unfortunately lost a number of its group, the confirmed departures from Avalon airport oval are: Jackson Davis (St Joseph's GFL),Ben Warren (Pascoe Vale EDFL),Trent Shinners, Jarrod Mather (Torquay BFL), Jobi Harper (Western Storm TSL) Dylan Jones (VAFA), Nick and Addam Maric (Greenvale EDFL),Sam Wormald (Torquay BFL), George Cameron, Jarred Moore (retired), Meyrick Buchanan (Footscray VFL),Billy Henderson (Bell Park GFL),Kirk Lang (West Preston Lakeside EDFL) .
