The Werribee Football Club is pleased to announce the signings of three former AFL
Players :Nathan Ablett, Ben Ross and Tim Ruffles.
Nathan Ablett made his AFL debut in 2005 and played 32 games with the Cats kicking 46 goals and played in the 2007 Geelong Premiership team.
He moved to the Gold Coast and played 2 games with the Suns in 2011.
Werribee coach Scott West is very happy to have him at the club “I think he is the key position player we were looking for and he will fit into our club very well. We are very pleased he is on board”.
Nathan is back living in Geelong and was looking to continue his footy “I am very excited. I am still keen to play and I want to do well with Werribee who I have played against a few times.”
Ablett joins two other former AFL listed players in Ben Ross and Tim Ruffles.
Ben Ross made his AFL debut in 2008 with the Kangaroos and played 14 games in his time at Arden Street. Ross finished third in the 2011 Werribee Best and Fairest Award and at 24 has plenty to offer to the Tigers midfield in 2012.
Tim Ruffles comes to the Tigers after 4 years at the Fremantle Football Club where he was taken pick 68 in the 2008 NAB Draft. Tim made his AFL debut in 2009 playing three games, a knee injury ended his season and after 2 games in his second season another knee injury forced him out. At 21 he has a lot of good football in front of him.
The Tigers have now signed all the top 5 from the 2012 Best and Fairest including joint winners Ben Sharp and Matt O’Dwyer.
