Darley was my Junior club. Produced elite tools like Heath Scotland.
Zack Butters apparently from there as well.
North Ballarat won a 3peat of premierships in the VFL when they had a part alignment with North Melbourne (who were also partly aligned with Werribbee) but have since lost their license - though it seems they are trying to get back in. Frankston who have never been an alignment club for AFL teams , also dropped out of the VFL for a couple of seasons but have since made a return.
I guess a lot of the restructure of teams in the VFL is to do with the move the the AFL teams to have their own reserves teams - so its interesting that Bewley and Duman as ex-AFL players have gone to non-aligned VFL clubs - well in Bewley's case back to country football.
Footy in 5 degrees is very harsh...but..if they haven't ripped out the few remaining open fires at a few of the old pubs..its a very cosy way to spend the evening....not a fan of north Ballarat lots of fam and friends played for them in the 70,s and 80,s,always good place to watch out for a blue though.
Who are Darley.. I left a long time ago..always favoured a redan social club satnight.

A few backhanders at Freo in that article.
Tobe showed he was capable at AFL level but he was always depth at the club. And unfortunately for him, we have plenty of options in the backline. I wish him all the best with the rest of his footballing career.
No current season stats available
Heard some discussion on radio last night that Jesse Crichton has signed with East Fremantle for 2022, and there is a story online confirming it.
Also, reporter McArdle suggesting last night that Tobe Watson likely to get an AFL offer as a train-on player in the pre-season, speculating he could go to West Coast with Shepherd retiring.
