Seagulls Sign Monk
Williamstown has signed Western Jets small forward Brayden Monk after an impressive TAC Cup career.
The Seagulls secured Monk, after a season where he also twice got a taste of VFL senior football with the Seagulls, and was a member of the premiership winning Development side.
Williamstown Football Manager Chris Dixon had praise for Monk, who finished 6th in the Western Jets best and fairest voting this year.
"Monky had a great impact this year playing two senior games and playing in the Development premiership," said Dixon.
"He is extremely sharp around goals and extremely courageous for someone his size."
Monk, who originally hailed from Werribee Districts, played for the Western Jets as a 19 year-old in 2015 after a stellar year in 2014 when he won the Barry Round Medal for the Jets Best & Fairest.
In 27 games for the Jets he featured in the best players 19 times, while kicking 14 goals through the midfield. This year he also managed five games at Development level with Williamstown and two games at senior VFL Level, with his best game coming against Frankston where he kicked two goals.
