    I remember him from last year, could be a great Otten replacement. Very good intercept marker.

    Late December Birthday it seems. Really, really happy we have done this. Really, really wanted us to start developing a KPD for a few years from now.

    Good luck Jordon.

    Edit: oops. Last years, so one of the oldest this year.

    A year late but I'm rapt we're giving him a shot, thought he was a certainty to get drafted last year with a late December birthday.

    From knightmare last year:

    Jordan Butts
    Position:
    Key defence
    Expected draft range: 35 to undrafted
    Why he can make it: Averaging a TAC Cup-high 7.5 marks per game, Butts is arguably the most underrated key position player in this year's draft. The 196cm, 82kg, defender is the youngest in the draft pool but has proven to be an intercept marking extraordinaire down back, with his strong overhead grabs and early reading of the ball in flight his great strengths.

    and this Year:

    Jordon Butts
    Position:
    Key defence
    Expected draft range: Late-undrafted
    Why he can make it: One of last season's most impressive key position players, achieving a competition high 7.5 marks per game, Butts returned to Murray in the TAC Cup and was again prolific. In two VFL games, he held his own and managed 10 marks in his second match, placing among Werribee's bests.

    Jordon Butts

    Height: 195cm
    Weight: 80kg
    Position: Defender
    DOB: 31/12/1999
    From: Murray Bushrangers

    BIO:

    The key defender is an exceptional intercept marker who is strong overhead and good at reading the ball in flight.

    Butts was the youngest attendee at last year's Draft Combine but was ultimately overlooked by clubs. He went back to the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup, averaging 17.5 disposals and six marks across 15 games.

    The 18-year-old also played three games for Shepparton in the Goulburn Valley League, the last of which was a premiership victory.

    Butts' father Gerard also won a premiership with the Bears in 1993 after a three-game VFL career with Carlton in 1988-89.

    Hopefully he won't be the Butt(s) of any jokes.

    Borough Sign Young Ruckman Kieran Strachan

    The Port Melbourne Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of young ruckman Kieran Strachan.

    Strachan is a 22-year-old, 202 centimetre ruckman initially from South Bendigo who has most recently been on Essendon’s VFL list.

    With a heavy artillery of AFL-listed personnel to choose from each week for the Bombers, Strachan was often an unfortunate ‘victim of circumstance’ when it came to earning a spot despite an obvious amount of raw ability and consistently-strong performances with his home club South Bendigo.

    Strachan has only played 4 VFL games since joining the Bombers VFL List in 2017 which included being named in the Best Players following a 16-disposal, 8-mark (5 contested) and 4-tackle match last year.

    Strachan won two consecutive best and fairests with the ‘Bloods’ in 2015/16, and has been on the radar of several AFL clubs having also tested at the AFL Combine last year.

    So far this season, Strachan has put together 7 games with South Bendigo and even managed to sneak forward to boot 9 goals.

    With Premiership ruckman Lachie Waddell currently sidelined with a foot injury, Borough fans can possibly expect to see Strachan play a role within the engine room over the next few weeks.

    Strachan will officially wear jumper number 50 for the Borough.

    From a list change point of view, Strachan officially replaces Wade Donnan who will be put on the club’s supplementary list as he returns from recent injury setbacks.

    Very Kurt Tippett in his marking and very Kyle Hartigan in his kicking.
