New Dolphins

From Frankston Standard Leader
Reported by Simon McEvoy

DETERMINED to strengthen its list, Frankston has secured a couple of good recruits.

Box Hill pair Jackson Sketcher and Leigh Kitchin signed with the Dolphins on Saturday.

The midfielders played in Box Hill’s reserves premiership side this year, Kitchin as captain. Sketcher was a star at TAC Cup level with the Sandringham Dragons, jointly winning the 2010 Morrish Medal with Dyson Heppell.

Kitchin has played in Box Hill’s reserves three successive flags, twice being named best-on-ground in grand finals. He’s also a Hawks reserves B&F winner.

‘‘He’s played at Box Hill for three years and with the Hawthorn players he just hasn’t been able to get the opportunities,’’ Frankston coach Simon Goosey said. ‘‘They add a bit of depth to our midfield. It’s looking good.’’

It would be great to see Frankston move up the ladder.

I wonder how many other players Box Hill will lose during the off-season?

I heard a rumour that there could be some other Box Hill players crossing to Kars Street. Not surprised at all. At least when they play for Frankston they are part of one club Frankston and not dropped to make room for some clown just having a run or playing a quarter to get fit. Wonder if Shaun Pollard will be enticed back home. He has had 2 injury ravaged seasons at Box Hill. They could also do with someone like Adam Pattison from Box Hill to help offset the loss of Russ Gabriel who has gone interstate.
