Some more good news to go with the 3 recruits below revealed in October, is the signing of Ruckman and CHB, Jack Nisbet. Jack is only 22 years of age and last year played at South Mornington. At 6ft 6 he will add to the options Josh has in 2016 to play through the ruck or another key position spot. Jack, joins Brady Egan, Harrison Wilson and James Appleford, in the big man department which is looking strong for season 2016.
Also great news to have Steve Downes back at the club in 2016. Steve a past Senior B&F winner (2006) and famously broke his leg in the warm up in the 2006 Grand Final against Langwarrin, will this year be our senior runner. Great to have Downsey back involved at the club.
Senior Coach Josh Moore and the Match Committee are pleased to announce the signing of three great recruits for season 2016. The Club has set out to recruit youth, pace and added height to complement its 2015 playing list, and are very pleased to have on board these 3 players, who give us all of the above.
We welcome to the RYE FC, Harry Whitty a 23 year old classy mid -field, forward from Peninsula Old Boys, who brings added pace to the team, goal kicking power and plenty of talent. Jimmy Jennings is back after 4 years with the Frankston Dolphins in the VFL. Jimmy who is around 6ft 2, can play in a key defensive role or off the Half Back Flank / Wing. Jimmy will also be used no doubt during the year as an Mid Field player as well. A booming kick, who runs and breaks the lines, Jimmy also has a massive motor, great to have him back in the Red & Blue.
Big James Appleford all 6ft 4 of him is also back at the club after 4 years playing up the line. 25 years of age and a powerful ruckman who will rest forward, gives Josh and the team some much needed height and also an increased physical presence around the ground. James has a massive leap and is a goal kicker when pushed forward. His height and speed make him very hard for the opposition to match up on.
The club is thrilled to have these young players on board for season 2016.
