Frankston players 2018

Bad news for the Dolphins faithful with Ben Cavarra signing with Willy for next year. Some of the signings for 2018 announced by the club so far.

Returning players

Nathan Gardner,Kyle Gray, Blake Mullane, Alex Harnett, Corey Buchan (training, not sure if he has signed on)


Players recruited from VFL clubs.

Jake Lovett - Casey,

Lachie Williams - Box Hill,

Mitch McCarthy - Collingwood rookie,

Darrean Wyatt - Collingwood/Coburg,

Nathan Scagliarini  - Sandy

Corey Rich - Sandy.

The club has targeted Jake Batchelor from Richmond, but I believe he also has an offer from Frankston Bombers, and may well make more money playing for them.



Jake Batchelor has signed with Dolphins as a playing assistant coach

Todd Elton from Richmond to the Dolphins.


Dolphins starting to get a good list together,Cavarra aside i really hope the other ex dolphs at Williamstown do the right thing and return home.

Josh Pickess & Daylan Kempster were at the Gulls end-of-year function last Sunday, so it would appear they are staying put. Josh Newman is off travelling overseas, so that only leaves Jason Pongracic & who else from Willi?

Pickess and Kempster have signed with Willy. Kyle Gray has returned to Frankston. Not sure about Pongo.....

Alls not lost for Frankston, Willy have to pay Frankston a transfer fee for Cavarra, Pickess and Kempster and Pongo if he stays at Willy ... so the extra $$$ may have helped them get, Elton, Batchelor and Fordham to the club.

Have heard Dolphins are in the running to get delisted West Coast eagle Tom Lamb.

Sam Fowler from Northern Blues

Matt La Fontaine from Collingwood VFL



Lachie George & Oliver Tate will be two very good players for Willy next year. Quality people also.
