Tweedie Recommits for 2019

The Box Hill Hawks are pleased to announce that Tristan Tweedie has put pen to paper and recommitted to the club for 2019.

For Tweedie, his first season in the brown and gold didn’t quite play to script. An already difficult year to break into the senior side was further complicated by injury, making opportunity particularly hard to come by.

In spite of this, Tweedie persisted at community club, East Ringwood, where he regularly featured amongst the side’s best. Getting the job done at both ends of the ground as a versatile swingman, at season’s end he was duly rewarded with Eastern Football League Division 1 Team of the Year honours.

And while still waiting to debut for the Hawks, Tweedie certainly doesn’t lack experience.

At just twenty years of age, Tweedie is well versed in what it takes to compete at VFL level notching eleven games with Footscray in 2017, after being picked up by the Western Bulldogs as a Category B Rookie via the Next Generation Academy.

Recruiters were drawn not only to the 190cm talent’s versatility, but natural game sense, ability to gather clean ball and deliver efficient disposal.

There remains much to be written in Tweedie’s football journey, which began in Healesville before progressing through the ranks of the Eastern Ranges; with enduring aspirations to play at the highest level and motivation provided by the prospect of having a second bite at a professional career.

The next step?

A solid 2019 VFL season.
