Who are the 22 players who have made the Addy's Bendigo Football League Team of the Year?
Clayton Anderson (Golden Square) – one of the smallest players in the BFL, but few can match the heart and fierce determination of the tenacious back pocket.
Tim Hill (Eaglehawk) – takes on the opposition’s best forward each week and is rarely beaten.
Tim Walsh (Gisborne) – first time team of the year selection for the Gisborne backman. Reliable and goes about his job with a minimum of fuss.
Mark Lloyd (Golden Square) – the Addy’s Player of the Year. Brilliant with his creativity and run out of the back half.
Josh Gribben (Castlemaine) – super debut season and quickly established himself as one of the BFL’s most versatile key position players.
Matthew Ladson (Strathfieldsaye) – another consistent season playing a combination of half-back and midfield for the minor premiers.
Wayne Schultz (Strathfieldsaye) – again lit up the BFL with his run and carry. Runner-up in the Michselsen Medal with 17 votes.
Casey Summerfield (Gisborne) – the captain typifies the Gisborne way with his head-over-the-ball approach to his footy.
Shaun Everington (Strathfieldsaye) – the hard-working Storm midfielder has been one of the BFL’s recruits of the season.
Tyrone Downie (Kangaroo Flat) – the former coach played a lone hand up forward for Kangaroo Flat, kicking 52 goals.
Kain Robins (Eaglehawk) – back in the BFL after two years away and picked up from where he left off, again dominating at centre half-forward. Kicked 50 goals.
Brodie Filo (Eaglehawk) – a highlight reel of some of his tricks this year would make for good viewing. The BFL’s equivalent of Gary Ablett Jnr with what he can do with a football.
Matt Gretgrix (Eaglehawk) – booted 71 goals including finals, and was the only player in the competition to kick a goal in every game his team played.
Justin Maddern (South Bendigo) – claimed the Ron Best Medal for his home and away season of 67 goals.
Lachlan Sharp (Strathfieldsaye) – the lively forward missed five games, but has snagged 51 goals. Kicked a season-high 12 against Kangaroo Flat in round 18.
Tim Martin (Sandhurst) – the first player picked in the team of the year. Simply outstanding in the ruck for Sandhurst all season and now has a Michelsen Medal in his trophy cabinet.
Simon Rosa (c) (Golden Square) – another typical polished season by the BFL’s No.1 onballer, who shows no signs of slowing down. Third in the Michelsen Medal.
Mitch Hough (Kangaroo Flat) – a stellar season in the midfield before suffering an ankle injury. Big possession winner.
Brady Childs (South Bendigo) – the skipper battled hard all season in the middle for South Bendigo.
Blair Holmes (Sandhurst) – similar to Childs in that the captain was a workhorse for his side, Sandhurst.
Mitch Dole (Sandhurst) – electric small forward/midfielder whose second half of the season was as good as any player in the BFL.
Rhys Ford (Castlemaine) – solid season by the Castlemaine forward, kicking 37 goals in a team that won three games.
