Coburg has finalised the full make up of its list for 2018, with the final recruit being former Geelong VFL and Calder Cannon player Josh Guthrie.
Guthrie has been part of Geelong’s VFL program for the past three seasons since finishing his time with the Calder Cannons at the end of 2014. After spending two seasons as part of their VFL Development Squad, he would make his debut in 2017 and managed nine games & two goals. When not on duty with Geelong, he would manage ten games with Ballarat Football League side Sunbury- being named in the best six times in the process.
Having only joined the squad last week for training & impressing in the practice match last Saturday, Guthrie is excited about a change of scenery, & is looking forward to joining several former Calder Cannons teammates, especially Mitch Conn whom he played Junior Football with at Sunbury.
“I’m hoping that I get the opportunity to play regular VFL Football, and I think Coburg is a place where I can achieve that. I’m looking forward to hopefully helping Coburg win some games in 2018. I’m really looking forward to the season.”
GM Sebastian Spagnuolo was pleased with Guthrie’s decision to join the club ahead of its list lodgement for the 2018 season.
“Josh was someone that we knew a bit about from his time with the Cannons a few years back and we saw him play against us in 2017 for Geelong in the VFL. He’s a hardworking, disciplined player who is also going to be a great person to have around the club,“ Spagnuolo added
With Guthrie’s signature, it brings our recruiting to a close for 2018. Full story on our 2018 list to come over the next week.
