Talk about a late flurry of signing so close to Xmas - happy days!!Mynott, Bowman, Lo Grice and Wall confirmed
Trent Mynott is the latest in a string of exciting signings for the Box Hill Hawks. The midfielder arrives at City Oval following two seasons on Essendon’s AFL rookie list.boxhillhawks.com.au
We lost a heap of mature bodies over the last couple of seasons through Box Hill losses (Moore, O’Donnell, Meadows, etc.) as well as Hawthorn losses (O’Rourke, Langford, Wilsmore, etc.). It’s important not to through lightly framed, inexperienced kids ’to the wolves’ so the recruitment drive helps keep Box Hill competitive and gives them depth in areas that Hawthorn might not have enough of to cover at both AFL and VFL levels.Seems we have been very aggressive with getting some talent into Box Hill this year. Can I ask, is this for player development to help with on field leadership to lead the way on the field; or some mature bodies to help out the younger ones while they develop given there is no development Keage now; or is a competitive team useful for going deep into finals to keep them match fit for senior team etc? Seems the busiest we’ve been in the off season at VFL level.
