The Box Hill Hawks have bolstered its midfield ahead of the 2017 VFL season, signing former Port Adelaide and Richmond player Andrew Moore.
Moore was drafted by Port Adelaide from the Eastern Ranges with the 9th overall selection in the 2009 AFL Draft. He played 55 games at the Power between 2010-2015, before crossing to the tigers ahead of the 2016 season. Moore played a further 5 games for the tigers in 2016 along with a handful of VFL games for Richmond, including an eye catching best on ground display against Box Hill in Round 16.
Moore’s experience and leadership will be an asset to the young Box Hill side, looking to improve on a disappointing 2016.
“It’s just continual improvement in each player on the list. It’s such a young and promising list with some very talented players coming through.”
Moore spent a week training with the Hawks before putting pen to paper for 2017.
“I did a few sessions before I signed and all the boys were very welcoming. It’s a great culture and something I wanted to be a part of”.
“They’ve (Box Hill Hawks) been very successful over many years and that’s something that definitely attracted me to the club”.
At only 25 years of age, Moore believes he has plenty to offer in 2017.
“It’s a great chance for me to continue to develop not only my overall game but my leadership as well. We want to win and we want to be successful moving forward”.
The Box Hill Hawks are looking forward to see Moore run out in the brown and gold at City Oval in 2017!
