Former Roo picked up by Aspley
Eddie Sansbury is heading to the Hornets.
Aspley has picked up a handy new recruit, adding South Australian Eddie Sansbury to the club’s list.
Sansbury comes from SANFL Club Centrals and is looking to settle down in South-East Queensland with his family.
The former South Australian state representative played 40 games for North Melbourne in a three-year AFL career, before returning to the SANFL.
Sansbury has had plenty of success with Centrals, picking up his first premiership at only 19.
He showed his talent at a young age, kicking five goals in the 2003 SANFL grand final, playing on future Brownlow medallist and no.1 draft pick, Adam Cooney.
The running half back will inject a bit more versatility into the side with his ability to push forward and should be a key player in Aspley’s bid to make the final five this season.
Sansbury has a wealth of experience, with three premierships under his belt and was Centrals 2011 Best and Fairest winner.
Aspley fans will get the chance to see Sansbury in NEAFL action on March 23, when the Hornets take on Southport at Fankhauser Reserve.
