Ben Bese returns to the Seagulls

The Williamstown Football Club can announce Ben Bese has re-joined the Club following several set backs with injury since the end of 2016.

Bese was a club favourite at the Seagulls playing 32 games from 2014-2016 including a career best 19 games in 2016 where he finished equal fourth in the Gerry Callahan Medal.
The hard-nosed defender has now fully recovered from a shoulder injury that occurred in the 2015 preliminary final against Essendon.
Bese’s courageous act that day proved the difference on the day, earning the Seagulls a berth in the 2015 grand final which the Club ultimately went on to win.
After numerous setbacks with surgeries to repair the shoulder, Bese missed the 2017 season but returned to Strathmore for the 2018 season where he has played some outstanding football.
“From a Club perspective it is great to see Ben back playing footy given what he has gone through since the initial injury. Given his form at Strathmore along with his desire to return to VFL footy, we are obviously excited to see him back at the Club” said GM-Football Stephen Soulsby.
Bese made a successful return to senior VFL football, playing a solid trademark game in the sides big win over North Melbourne.
