Rochester Football Club has secured one of the best football players in country Victoria with the signing of Golden Square forward Grant Weeks.November 20, 2012 10:00am
Goal-kicking machine Grant Weeks will play for the Rochester Tigers next year in what is a huge coup for the club.
Weeks kicked a Bendigo Football League record 164 goals for premier Golden Square this year, booting 451 from 59 games from his three seasons at the club.
The year before that he kicked 124 goals for Colbinabbin in the Heathcote and District Football League.
The 24-year-old comes to the Tigers in peak form and as a triple-premiership player for Golden Square, saying he wanted to challenge himself and give himself the best chance of succeeding in the Goulburn Valley Football League.
The Colbinabbin farmer attended Rochester Secondary College and will join Golden Square premiership teammates Brayden Dorrington and Luke Sharp at the club.
The multiple Vic Country representative, who has twice been named in the All Australian team at the Australian Country Football Championships, told the Bendigo club of his decision on Sunday after approaching Rochester in the past two weeks.
Weeks had signed for Golden Square in 2013, but the club will not stand in his way of moving to Rochester.
Daniel Anderson, Luke Geister, David Price and Dylan Cuttriss have also joined the Tigers during the off-season.
