The Devils have signed former Vermont player Patty Bridges to the Devils for season 2019. He is a tough uncompromising utility player who has built his name on being a team first player, which is perfect for the Devils.
Patty played his junior footy at Vermont and went on to be part of their Reserves premierships of 2017 & 2018. He is another young talent the Devils have recruited who we expect to have an impact with the Senior team next season & beyond.
Welcome to the Devils Patty!
Preseason training continues on Wednesdays at Wantirna High from 6pm.
