Devils champion Brad Hutchinson has advised the club he will be retiring from footy at the end of the season.
“Hutchi” is an outstanding footballer, and has been for a long time, both with the Devils and Stony Creek FC. He has played 133 games with Devils and 183 with Stony Creek & Alberton ( 316 Senior games). He also booted 113 goals for the Devils.
Brad played in 2 premiership sides with the Devils, and one with Stony Creek. He was named in the Devils team of the decade of 2001 to 2010, and has won 3 Senior Best & Fairests. At Stony Creek he won 5 Best & Fairests & one with Alberton. An outstanding list of achievements in football.
Brad brought a very highly consistent effort to every game he played and is greatly admired for his skills and relentless contribution to the team’s cause. “Hutchi” is truly one of the all time greats of Wantrina South FC.
A strong leader on & off the field, the Devils are a better football club because of the contribution of Brad Hutchinson.
We will miss watching him play our great game and wish him all the best for him and his family.
Daniel “Dipper” Beddome, became The Devils all time highest goal kicker last Saturday.
Starting the game at 591 goals, Dipper kicked the record breaking goal before half time in the game against Waverley at Walker reserve.
The previous record was 592 by club hall of famer, Wayne Nelson.
Dipper was playing his last game at Walker reserve as he will be retiring from footy at the end of the season.
It was great he broke the record with so many Devils supporters at the game to enjoy the moment.
Dipper finished the game with 3 goals, bringing the tally to 594.
Earlier this week Brian Jenkins passed away and the Club sends its condolences to his family.
Brian, a former player of the club who went on to be Secretary and Treasurer of the club was a long time generous supporter and sponsor of the Devils for many years.
He supplied fruit from his orchards to the players and club every week for decades, and also did the same for the Junior Devils.
Football clubs exist today because of the loyal and generous support of people like Brian, and The Devils are no exception.
