8. Nick Mellington
Recruited from: Coburg/Richmond VFL
Local Club: Pascoe Vale/EDFL
Mellington, 22, joins the Club after VFL stints at Richmond and Coburg having been in the VFL system since 2015. Mellington had a stand out season in 2017 averaging 25 disposals, 6 tackles and 6 clearances, backing it up with a third-place finish in Coburg’s best and fairest count in 2018. The hard-running left-footer was a part of Coburg’s leadership group for the last two seasons, a former captain of the Murray Bushrangers and will bring versatility to Club’s midfield stocks.
