Dick returns to Cats

Matt Dick (Shawn Smits)

Macedon has welcomed back premiership star Matt Dick for next year’s Riddell District Football League season.

The former AFL player had this year off football, but will be a key inclusion for the Cats as they look to rise up the ladder.

Dick returned to his junior club after his AFL days ended and has been a star player in the competition. He was part of the Cats 2017 premiership.

Joining Dick at the Cattery next year is Johno Bissell. He joins the club from Bacchus Marsh in the Ballarat Football League.

He played 16 games for the Cobras last season and was named in the best in two of those games.

He is the second Bacchus Marsh player to join the club, with Jayden Cott also having signed on.

Cott played three senior games and seven reserves games for the Cobras this year, kicking three goals and was named in the best three times.

Tom Indian is also joining the club for next season.

Indian played for Hurstbridge in the Northern Football League division 1 competition this year.

He played 18 games for the season, split evenly between seniors and reserves.

He was named in the best twice in his senior games.

Tate Wilson and Nathan Hynes, who had impacts at under-17 and under-19 level respectively this year, have joined the club. Both are still eligible for under-19s next year.

The Cats finished sixth this year percentage outside the top five after a slow start to the season.
