Matthew Watson also makes frequent appearances along Sydney Road's pubs.DANIEL GORRINGE (PARK ORCHARDS)
Gorringe was one of Balwyn’s marquee recruits in the off-season but departed when it was announced his former Gold Coast coach Rodney Eade had replaced Marty Pask. Has since joined Division 2 club Park Orchards, providing vital experience for the emerging club.
BROCK MCLEAN (DONCASTER EAST)
The ex-Melbourne and Carlton midfielder joined Doncaster East at the end of 2016 in its bid to join Division 1 for the first time. Has been an integral part of Doncaster East’s on-ball brigade and was named an assistant coach for 2018.
SIMON WHITE (DONCASTER EAST)
The former rookie was delisted at Carlton after 87 games at the end of 2017, joining former teammate Brock McLean at Zerbes Reserve over the summer. Was among the Lions’ best players in three of his five games.
LUKE BLACKWELL (ABERFELDIE)
The former Carlton and WAFL midfielder is in his fourth season in the Essendon District Football League and is one of the competition’s best players.
Blackwell claimed the league’s highest honour — the Reynolds Medal in 2016 — and has been in red-hot form this season.
DENNIS ARMFIELD (AVONDALE HEIGHTS)
A popular figure during his AFL career with Carlton, the 31-year-old is in his first season with Avondale Heights and has been a key contributor on the field. Armfield harbours coaching ambitions and has been a more-than handy resource for Heights boss Donald McDonald.
MATTHEW WATSON (PASCOE VALE)
The former Carlton player made only 23 appearances for Carlton at the top level, but he has wasted no time terrorising opposition defences in the top flight of the EDFL. Watson leads the competition’s goalkicking table with 39 from eight games after returning to his junior club following a two-year stint in the WAFL.
