150 for Luke Morrisson
Congratulations to Luke Morrison who plays his 150th BentleighFC game on Saturday.
Had the team dropped the first final last year, Luke would have played shared his milestone with a premiership, however playing his 150th in the clubs return to division 1 will be a memorable experience.
As part of the senior leadership group, Luke has been an outstanding contributor on and off the field. Luke has kicked 67 goals for Bentleigh.
As a product of the Bentleigh Junior Football Club, Luke has been an integral part of our recent success.

In what seems a lifetime since the Club’s grand final victory in Division 2 last season, the Club finally gets what it had planned for since rejoining the SFL – that is, to play in Division 1.
A tremendous amount of hard work has been done, both on and off the field, to prepare the Club for its Round 1 matches against St. Kilda City and Carrum Patterson Lakes in the Under 19’s.
Working in tandem with the football side of things a great deal of hard work has also taken place to give the Club three netball teams in 2014.
Round 1 matches in Division 1 and 2, against Dingley, and Division 3, against Springvale, are what the girls have been preparing for. Round 2 matches in Division 1 and 2, against St. Kilda City, and Division 3, against Cheltenham, are the next steps towards a successful season.
Although the football club has bid farewell to some Club stalwarts, we are confident that the recruitment of some key, experienced footballers alongside the youth emerging from the reserves and under 19’s, will see Bentleigh perform well in Division 1.
Our youth development group has done a fantastic job in recruiting a significant number of players to, once again, see the Club being able to field a more than competitive Under 19’s side.
In 2014 our onfield football department has a decidedly local look about it with, apart from senior coach Brad Canavan, the rest of our coaching staff being appointed from within the Club’s senior and junior ranks. The Club’s aim of growth from within, for its playing and coaching list, has materialized.
Accolades are often given to players and coaching staff at football clubs, however, our Club would like to congratulate its administrators and officials on the Bentleigh Football Club being awarded the Best Conducted Club in Div 2 as well as the Best Conducted Club, overall, in 2013. A job well done to our hardworking volunteers.
All Club members and supporters are advised to regularly check the Club’s website / facebook sites and Club app for updates regarding Club events.
A huge “Thank You” to Zibba and Kim for what they are doing in the communication area.
Bentleigh Netball Returns this Saturday
The Bentleigh netballers kick off their season this weekend with the three sides taking part in their first of three grading matches.
Both our division 1 and 2 girls will take on reigning premiers Dingley in a tough first up match, while our new third side will play Springvale Distrcits.
This is the first time we have fielded three sides and the growth of the competition is extremely exciting.
A fixture will be set from round 4 onwards with the full fixture becoming available at www.bentleighfc.com shortly after that.
Thank you to Kobey Weir for her great work in preperation for the season and we wish the girls the best of luck!
