The Sandringham Football Club is pleased to announce that Lochie Bentonhas signed with the Zebras for the 2024 season.
Former Sandringham Dragon Lochie Benton will make his way back to Wilson Storage Trevor Barker Beach Oval for the 2024 season.
Benton - a Premiership Player for the Dragons in 2022 - spent a year at the Dingley Dingoes in the Southern Football Netball League (SFNL), where Head Coach Jake Batchelor said that he “played very high quality footy all over the ground”.
“He reads the cues well, can intercept in the air and has an elite kick, which all suit our style of play,” Batchelor added.
The twenty year-old has always been a dedicated player, playing two seasons during his Under 10s year to assist the Under 11s side in their successful premiership pursuit.
When talking with the Dingoes media, Benton said he ‘just [wants] to play at the highest level that [he] can’ - an attribute that will be sure to get him far at the Zebras.
Now established as a midfielder whilst also biding his time across half back, we can’t wait to see Benton’s versatility shine next season.
