Looks like Port has continued to target players in the same mould of last years recruits, going after big bodied talls. Not a bad idea as we were exposed on occasions in season 2019 when coming up against the big bodies of the AFL team - one match comes to mind - Geelong during the home and away - that match we had no answer and suffered a significant loss.

Digs was right - all of Ports recruits are BIG !

I'm happy to see Fletcher Roberts has put pen to paper at the Borough.  Fletcher, a former AFL 2016 premiership player at the Doggies held down a key defensive position and should be a very handy pickup for Port.

Been a great start to building our 2021 list especially after having acquired 2 ex AFL players. After the past couple of seasons i was begining to think that the club was losing its ability to attract players coming off AFL lists. These types of players have had a massive impact on the club in the recent past - eg Jordan Lisle, Dan Conners, Nahas, John Baird, Sam Dwyer, Matt Arnot etc etc.

Port is building a very strong list with a couple more exciting recruits expected to come.

Three times league highest goalkicker Jordan Lisle has retired from VFL stating work as being the reason for his retirement. Massive loss to both the club and the competition and will be missed on field - off field Jordan indicated that he will be around the place sending a see you on the hill message to the supporters.

Port has had a excellent run in the past decade of winning the Frosty Miller having won it 7 times in the past decade. Perhaps the club was expecting Jordan not to play this year with the signing of Patrick Kerr. Will Kerr be able to live up to the challenge of filling the big boots that Jordan Lisle has left ?

Port are sniffing around Frankston's Angus Hanrahan, brother of Hawthorns Ollie Hanrahan. Things must be getting back to normal, with Port and/ or Willy raping the Dolphins playing list.

With the significant cut in the salary cap, money will be less a incentive for players to leave lower clubs and will most likely mean that clubs like Frankston may be able to hold onto more players than they have in the past. Going forward the most likely reason for player transfer would be to play with a more succesfull club however the salary cap adjustment most likely will see some sort of equalisation to the standard of club lists and therefore cutting the big gap from worst to first. 

The days of Frankston losing by a dozen goals to Port Melbourne may be over, we may now have to settle for 8, 9 goal wins instead 😁

Covid will put Frankston back a year or so, and they will play kids again next year. Hopefully they will be in a position to get some players (and keep the ones they have!) in 2022.

Mega, Frankston always put a good showing against the Borough, very few wins except for a few practice games and I cant remember too many huge floggings.

Do you know if Tom Goodwin is going around again next year? Paul Amy has him looking for new home - he'd be a nice fit at Frankston!
