PRE SEASON TRAINING STARTS
Kris Barlow addressed the players in the Clubrooms spelling out in great detail the sort of footy Vermont would be playing in 2012. A large group of 60 players, including some boys from the Colts, enthusiastically embraced what will be a very different Vermont indeed.
Amongst the group were 5 of the newly signed players in Adrian Gelino & David Leung (East Burwood), David Edgecumb (Sth Wantirna), Jack Besley (Hampton Park) and Nathan Henley ( back from Old Melb.) Heath Black will not be with us till after Xmas as will a couple of other boys from WA. Two other Vermont players who did not play in 2011 will also return in Matt Smith and Jarrod Bird. The only confirmed regular Senior player who has departed is Ashley Froud. Virtually a new player will be Dean Kelly who missed most of 2011, but is now ready to play. There are still a number of recruits very interested in joining us for what is going to be a very exciting time indeed.
Kris has also has three new Assistants :- Jason Fennell, (who was with Kris at Noble Park ), Andrew Smith (6 times Vermont Premiership player) and Heath Black.
It was a terrific start.
