VFL stars re-sign for 2019
Williamstown Football Club is thrilled to announce the re-signing of star forward Sam Dunell and defender Jack Charleston for the 2019 season.
Dunell had another consistent season kicking 29 goals, and provided plenty of support for Nick Rodda, Ben Cavarra and Lachie Schultz.
A five-goal haul against the Northern Blues in Round 6 was his standout performance for the year, finishing in the Club’s top 10 Best & Fairest. Dunell has been a mainstay in the Seagulls forward line since joining the Club at the start of the 2015 season, and will likely bring up 200 VFL Goals in the first half of the season.
He will also continue his role as a Playing Assistant Coach, working with Forwards Coach Clint Proctor, a role that Dunell has used his vast experience in assisting the forward half.
Charleston arguably had his best season for Williamstown in 2018 which culminated in him finishing third in our best and fairest count. Charleston continues to put his body on the line, and his run and dash off half-back was instrumental as always.
“Milky”, again showed why he is one of the most respected defenders in the game, constantly shutting down his AFL listed counterparts which saw him gain the attention of AFL recruiters leading into this year’s Draft.
“Both Sam and Jack bring a wealth of experience to our side and it is fantastic to see them continue in 2019. Jack continues to grow as a leader within our group whilst Sam is a proven leader. Both drive high standards at training and on match day which sees them highly respected within our playing group and the VFL,” said GM-Football Stephen Soulsby.
