Devils in the Finals this Sunday

Our Development Team ( Reserves! ) plays in the 1st Semi Final against Lilydale this Sunday at Tormore reserve Boronia. Coach Luke “Rock” Slater has got the team hungry to give this a red hot shake, and all involved have confidence after a very strong 2nd half of the season. 

We lost to them at Lilydale earlier in the season, but we got them when they played us at home. Well done to the players and Rock on making the finals and representing the Devils the best they can. We will all be there to support the team on Sunday.

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.
