James Tsitas has come from Williamstown; where he has been since the start of 2020 in the pursuit of more VFL games after playing only 10 matches in 2019. He Co-Captained Geelong VFL in 2019, after being named the Geelong VFL B&F in 2017. He has played 92 games during his VFL career; and will commence training with WWTFC this Wednesday; his first game expected to be this Saturday against West Adelaide.
Luke Powell says “James is a quality player and an outstanding young man who we had been trying to get over from Victoria for the past couple of seasons. When the VFL was cancelled early last month, James reached out to us to see if there was an opportunity to come over to SA. James will add to an already strong midfield group and also brings with him great leadership qualities. James is eager to play this week and we are excited to see him in an Eagles guernsey”
The second player joining the Eagles is Sam Lowson. Sam has come over from Coburg Football Club; after playing 34 games with them. Lowson made a fast start to the 2019 season with 13 goals from the opening six games and was widely tipped to be an early selection in the mid year rookie draft – however a foot injury just before the draft sadly wrecked his chances.
Luke Powell says “Sam is another high-quality player from the VFL. Sam has been and continues to be a highly touted draft prospect and we see it as a great opportunity to provide Sam that avenue while also helping our Football Club. Again with the VFL cancelled for 2020 Sam was keen to play football somewhere this season and we are glad we are able to provide him with the chance to do so. Sam is only arriving in SA today so he is still a couple of weeks away from joining the team on the track. Our coaching staff and playing group is excited of the prospect of bringing two quality young men into our Club that we see the potential to be very long servants at the Eagles“
Please join us in welcoming both James and Sam to the Eagles Family.
