PORT MELBOURNE is back in town, or at the city limits at least judging by its stunning recruiting spree over the past month.
On Wednesday the Borough announced a quartet of quality signings, headed by former Essendon speedster Dylan Clarke and ex-Gold Coast Suns Joel Wilkinson and Mitch Riordan (from Sandringham), plus Oakleigh Chargers midfielder Angus Curry.
Their arrivals come on the back of last week’s coups of landing former Sydney ruckman Sam Naismith, prolific GWS GIANTS VFL midfielder Josh Green and Melbourne-listed Fraser Rosman, who would be a Casey Demons premiership player but for a hamstring injury suffered in the preliminary final win over the Brisbane Lions.
Mitch Cox will finally play for Williamstown, 12 months after originally signing for the Seagulls. He is the latest recruit in a wonderful offseason for the blue with gold sash. Here's my update on how the Hobsons Bay boys are shaping up for VFL 2023.
