Posted on - Latest News, Premier B Men's, Featured, Partners, Old Brighton

Congratulations to Harry Hill of Old Brighton on his Round 16 Grill’d Rising Star nomination following another standout performance over the weekend.

“Harry Hill arrived at Old Brighton Grammarians this year, after a decorated career at Brighton Grammar School where he was captain of the school and a dual premiership player.  

Harry‘s reputation preceded him and when he weaved through a pack and goaled for the third time against the Rovers in Round 3, to set up a seven goal lead at half-time, we knew we were looking at our next champion.  

Harry has maintained our excitement by playing every senior match in the mid-field, appearing in the best player list in most of them.  He has already kicked 17 goals and set up just as many for his team-mates. Harry is a classy footballer, whose skills set him apart from most other players. He is precise and efficient on both sides of his body, and his instinctive feel for the game enables him to make quick decisions under pressure.

His penetrating passes often release team-mates from tight situations or set them up to score.  He is a strong mark for his size, combining sound judgement of the ball drop with a handy leap.

Consequently, he has already become a focus of opponents’ attention as they try to limit his influence. Harry’s consistent form led to his selection in the VAFA Under-19 side earlier in the season and he responded by winning the award for best on the ground.  

Harry is understandably revered by his peers and many of them have followed him to the Club to continue their success and forge their futures in the Red and Blue.  Harry is crucial to the future of the OBGFC where his courage and taste for the contest will undoubtedly see him lead and become one of the VAFA’s most valued players.”
