(Pretty poor our club couldn’t get DEREK Kickett’s christian name correct…)
We’ve finalised the team’s guernsey numbers for 2019 with a total of seven changes.
The new numbers were unveiled today at our annual Family Day at the Melbourne Showgrounds in Flemington. The club’s six new players, as well as young forward Jayden Laverde, were presented with their jumper numbers by lucky Junior members who were surprised with the opportunity on the day.
Having been traded to the Bombers by GWS in the October AFL Trade Period, Dylan Shiel will take on a new playing number, when he runs out in the red and black donning the No.9 guernsey in 2019.
The guernsey has rich history at the Bombers with former captain Brendon Goddard and club champions Adam Ramanauskas and Derrick Kickett previous custodians of the jumper.
Former Fremantle ruckman and mature-age recruit Zac Clarke will wear No.20, while Laverde has opted to don No.15 in 2019.
Draftees Irving Mosquito, Noah Gown, Brayden Ham and Tom Jok will wear Nos. 22, 32, 33 and 46 respectively.
Having been re-drafted to the Club as a rookie, defender Matt Dea will continue his AFL career wearing the No.49 guernsey.
The remainder of the Bombers’ playing list remains unchanged for season 2019.
9 – Dylan Shiel
15 – Jayden Laverde
20 – Zac Clarke
22 – Irving Mosquito
32 – Noah Gown
33 – Brayden Ham
46 – Tom Jok
