Tremendous news for the Beaumaris Football Club this week was the announcement that Luke Cleary will make his debut for the Western Bulldogs in the clash with Collingwood at Marvel Stadium tonight.
Luke started playing with the BFC in the Under 9s and stood out early as a player with special talent. He also stood out as a great kid who developed into a fine young man with an exceptional footy IQ.
Last year he was drafted to the Bulldogs at pick 61 and has quickly made his mark in the Bulldogs VFL side.
The BFC wishes Luke all the best for his debut game and may it be the first of many in a long and rewarding AFL career.
FLASHBACK: The 2017 Under 15s Division 1 Grand Final.
After scraping into the finals with a 7/6 record, the BFC boys surprised everyone with two stunning semi-final victories. Making it to the Grand Final they were underdogs against a red hot East Malvern.
Final score: East Malvern 6.10-46 - BFC 18.7-115.
Significantly, a young gun called Luke Cleary kicked 6 goals in that grand final.
