news from werribee football
Dom Gleeson moves on.
Dom Gleeson has advised the Club today that he has accepted an offer to join the Geelong Football Club as a player and assistant coach for their VFL side plus working in their AFL Development area.
On the Geelong website Dom had this to say â€œâ€œI have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Werribee and I thank them for the opportunities they have provided me over the past 8 yearsâ€.
President John Nicol responded â€ Dom has been our captain for the last three seasons and is a dual best and fairest winner, life member and games record holder . It is an understatement to say he is a very important part of this clubs history. While I am sad to see him move on, like others before him, I am proud of what our club has given to him and vice versa. In 2012 we will have a new coach and now a new captain. I want to thank Dom for his contribution to this club on and off the field and wish him well for the futureâ€.
Werribee Football Club continues to be a pathway for players and coaches to achieve opportunities at the highest level. In recent years
