What more does Michael Gibbons need to do to get onto an AFL list?

The Williamstown VFL player is a dual JJ Liston Trophy winner (VFL Best & Fairest Winner) at just 23 years of age, but continues to be snubbed by AFL clubs.

Former Melbourne and Sydney coach Paul Roos told Fox Footy’s On The Couch in August that Gibbons was worthy of a spot on an AFL list and could help struggling clubs down the bottom of the ladder.

The three-time VFL Team of the Year winner also won the 2015 Norm Goss Medal as the best player in the VFL Grand Final.

“Now Micky Gibbons is now playing for Williamstown in the VFL, he was as standout young kid that played I think two years in the Rams (NSW-ACT) program as a bottom-age kid and played as a top-age kid.

"I'm in good spirits. One door closes and another one opens."

De-listed Hawk veteran Brendan Whitecross has been thrown a lifeline, accepting a coaching role with North Melbourne.

The Kangaroos signed the former Hawk as a development coach and player for the club's VFL team.

Hawthorn announced last Monday that Whitecross and VFL teammate Kieran Lovell would not be offered contracts for next season.

"Brendan will play an instrumental role in helping to develop our younger players," Kangaroos football manager Cameron Joyce said.

"He's always had great versatility, playing forward, back or through the midfield, which will be beneficial.

"He knows what it takes to be successful and work through adversity and will set a great example for our younger players coming through.

The jubilant Hawks celebrate on the siren.

BOX Hill Hawks have completed one of the VFL’s most stirring finals campaigns after a come-from-behind 10-point grand final victory over Casey Demons at Etihad Stadium.

The Hawks, sixth on the ladder after the home-and-away rounds, became the first team to win the premiership from outside the top four since the competition was revamped and a top-eight system introduced in 2000.

Box Hill trailed for the entire game until midway through the final quarter after reeling in a 22-point deficit early in the third term.

Kieran Lovell put the Hawks up for the first time in the contest after a classic piece of roving off the palms of dominant ruckman Marc Pittonet, giving the Hawks a two-point advantage.

Draftee Dylan Moore then sealed the come-from-behind win after receiving a free kick in the goalsquare for high contact, giving the Hawks their second state league premiership in six years.
