Johns & Staples back home in 2017
Kyle who is just 21 had a terrific year in our Seniors in 2015 winning the Senior Rising Star Award and will very much slot in to a key defensive role given that Matt Willcocks is going to England next winter to play Cricket. Another player likely to be on the move is a super young ruckman Liam Buxton, who is keen to see how he will go at the Northern Blues in the VFL. Not that we want to leave, we wish him every success.
FROM OUR 2014 YEAR BOOK
Lachy Johns has progressed from our Juniors to be one of the best and most damaging players in the competition. He is strong, courageous, mentally tough and finds the footy often around the packs . Plus, he has a massive ability to kick the footy. Particularly kicking goals on the run from a long way out. At only 21 years old he has the talent to play footy at a higher level, even though it would be a massive loss to not have him with us. A potential Vermont Captain, he is an outstanding player and very worthy winner of the 2014 Best & Fairest
