It’s official, Trent Angwin will play for Darley in the 2019 Ballarat Football League season.
The offseason movement of the 2016 Bacchus Marsh Premiership defender has been the subject of wide spread interest given his intended club happens to be cross town rival Darley.
Angwin was recently granted clearance from the Cobras and is now a registered Darley player.
And according to Darley coach Heath Scotland, Angwin could not have been more impressive since arriving at his new home.
“Trent has been super, he’s very fit and has not missed a session,” he said.
“His work rate on the track has been a stand out – his effort running has been up there, near matching it with the midfield group.”
Angwin’s size and aerobic capacity will give Scotland the flexibility to pick and choose where he plays depending on the opposition and given match situation.
“While Trent has played predominately in defence, we think he is capable of playing multiple roles,”
“He could even play on a wing or as a big bodied midfielder.”
The Devils will be hoping to improve on an injury plagued 2018 and overcome the loss of Dylan Reid (Ruck), Rhys Ellis (key tall), Luke Delahey (half back), Steve Kennedy (mid) and Abe Kur (utility) in the off season.
The marquee signing of Nick Graham (Carlton) and the addition of Josh Pickess (Williamstown) and now Trent Angwin is a step in the right direction.
Angwin, a product of the Bacchus Marsh junior program played 64 games for the Cobras.
