|Andy Brennan in action in last year's Hudson Cup, Brennan|
has been signed by Bentliegh Greens after the South Hobart
match against Bentleigh Greens.
Andy Brennan of South Hobart SC is the latest Tasmanian player to make the step to the Victorian Premier League, in search of bigger things in football.
Brennan was signed by Bentleigh Greens FC during South Hobart’s tour of Victoria after he had a strong game against the Greens, netting a goal and raising a few eyebrows in the process.
The news will be welcomed with mixed emotions at South Hobart on the eve of the Victory League kick off.
Brennan who is 19 is without doubt one of the finest players going around in Tasmania at present, he would have been a major part of Ken Morton’s plans for the 2013 campaign, but at the end of the day, Morton has delivered on his word to try and push the local talent onto bigger and better things, the trip to Victoria has given Brennan the chance to showcase himself to other clubs and ended up delivering him a contract at the next level above.
Interesting to note that Bentleigh have a fine record with A-League Clubs, developing names like Connor Pain (MVFC) Nick Ansell (MVFC) Paolo Retre (Heart) and Melbourne Victory goal keeper Lawrence Thomas who made his spectacular debut for Victory after Ante Covic was sent off against Brisbane Roar in the second minute back in 2011, Thomas played that match with only 8 players in front of him for more than an hour. Perhaps Bentleigh will add another player to their impressive list.

Rangers have resigned the George Dale medal winner and
he should be on show in the 2013 campaign.
