Keilty makes SFNL top 5

GAMEFACE DIV 1 TOP 50 | #4


Declan Keilty (Bentleigh Football and Netball Club)


It is rare these days that a player joins a Southern league club straight off an AFL list, but that is just what Keilty did when he put pen to paper with Bentleigh for the 2020 season. The 194cm key position swingman spent three years on the Demons' list after being selected at pick 41 in the 2016 Rookie Draft, and he played two AFL games after making his debut in Round 7 of last year against Hawthorn. Keilty has shown significant improvement with Casey in the VFL in recent seasons, and with his sure hands, elite level experience, and ability to play both ends of the ground and in the ruck, he is set to be a massive weapon for Bentleigh and have a huge impact on the SFNL Division 1 competition.
