BLK Players of the Round

Mitch Backman

Mitch Backman - East Brighton FC

On an afternoon where hotly-contested footy, turnovers and plenty of stoppages were the order of the day, Backman stood out with his precise ball use. He hit up teammates by hand and foot time and again off half back, and looked to take the game on and move the ball quickly at every opportunity. Played in several positions throughout the year, Backman seems to have found his niche as a backman, providing drive out of defence with his poise under pressure.

Congratulations Mitch.


Jake Chapman

Jake Chapman – Ashwood FC

Chapman was simply electric – particularly early on in the contest – and was pivotal in Ashwood gaining the early ascendancy. To half time nobody on the ground was working harder than the elusive forward, who took countless lead-up marks on the wing and half forward and drove his side into attack. He also followed up his delivery inside 50 to effect the contest. Chapman also had his radar working, booting 4.1 including a ripper from the boundary to seal the victory.

Congratulations Jake.

Leader Shooting Star


Spencer Daly - Bentleigh FC

Spencer has backed up his Leader Shooting Star Award-winning 2014 season with another fantastic year. Can he go back to back? His form throughout that season has been very consistent, but he has taken it up another notch this year. Spencer will play an important role during the 2015 Finals Series and will be a future leader of the Bentleigh Football Netball Club.

Congratulations Spencer.
