A few key signings over the off season!
Reid Crowe’s signing should have the supporters up and about. Coming off a Best and Fairest season with Shepparton United in the GV, his ability to win the ball one on one and in the contest is second to none. Whether he is in the middle or down forward, expect him to have equal influence on the game. Reid’s introduction to senior football at an early age has given him the confidence and ability to take the game by the scruff of the neck and turn nothing into something. He moves to Melbourne hoping to do big things with the Chelsea Football Club.
Also joining him is good friend Josh Hargreaves - Crowe and Hargreaves spent two years playing together in the MFL. Don’t let Hargreaves’s size fool you. His tackle pressure sure does show it’s about the size of the fight in the dog, not the dog in the fight. His ability to spread from packs and deliver the football lace out should have the forwards excited for the year to come. Hargreaves joins Chelsea off a season with his local club Murrumbeena where he had an impressive finals series.
Welcome to Chelsea Reid and Josh!
