Big man Jake Reeves is returning to play with Kyabram Foootball Club this season.
Kyabram Football Club prayers have been answered with talented big man Jake Reeves’ decision to return to play with the Bombers this season.
Reeves has spent the last two seasons with VFL side Werribee after playing well in the Bombers’ runners-up sides as a 16 and 17-year-old in 2009 and 2010.
Reeves is the final piece in Kyabram’s bold recruiting puzzle for the coming season.
The Bombers have bolstered areas where they feel is required to make a serious assault on this season’s flag but were lacking a key ruckman until Reeves committed last week.
‘‘It will be great to have him back because is a very talented young player and he’s another local. He’s just the player we were badly lacking,’’ said Kyabram coach Dave Williams this week.
Reeves encountered injuries playing at Werribee over the past two seasons but is expected to play in the upcoming Kyabram practice games to prepare for the season.
He has done the pre-season with Werribee and has told Bombers secretary, Max McKenzie, that he’s never been fitter.
Recruits in Simon Seddon and Josh Linton, who both previously played for the club, plus other newcomers in ex-Brisbane Lion player Sam Sheldon and his cousin Tom, Beau Runnalls, Brett Davis, Axel Childs and Jordan Briggs have all had training sessions with the club this year as the countdown to the season hots up.
