WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - DEAKYN SMITH

Recommended Posts




DEAKYN SMITH (Dandenong Stingrays)

179cm, 65kg/seven NAB League games in 2019

“Deakyn is a Caulfield Grammar boy so we haven’t seen a heap of him at NAB League level this year, but his form in school footy has been really good. He can play inside or outside the contest and his body is developing well. He got a taste of Vic Country under-16s last year.”

Highlighted as one to watch for the futures game.

Not related to the player quoted, but it looks like donuts from our Alice Spring zone, again.

I'd love to know what sort of resources are being thrown into that area.

List of players in our NT academy.

NT Academy takes part in Michael Long Cup

Two of the boys listed Tyrell Martin and Alonzo Nelson have been selected for the 2019 Flying Boomerangs Team.

We also have Andy Moniz-Wakefield  in the NT Thunder u16 team.

Kobi George is the likely NGA player that will be definitely grabbed in the 2020 draft.  Dees need to keep him under wraps.  

Not the star midfielder type but the smart fast half forward goalkicker.  Think type of player like Josh Hill (former bulldog/eagle). 

Will go to GC17 as they’ll get all of NT as a zone

This is from 2017 -

Berwick’s Kobi George and Narre Warren’s Deakyn Smith have been selected in the Flying Boomerangs

More recently from the Stingrays site -

Kobi George (Berwick): “Kobi is an indigenous player who’s part of Melbourne’s Next Generation Academy. His ball control and ability to sidestep is exceptional and he’s very quick off the mark, but we just need to get his endurance levels up a bit. He could be one to watch.”

Anyone tracking our NGA prospects Kobi George and Deakyn Smith? Are we expecting bids to match or to otherwise draft?

(I know difficult given they probably haven't played this year). 

For the record, hoping Toby Bedford (former NGA prospect) gets another year to develop if not already contracted for 2021.

No, I expect them both not to get picked up. 

Weren't really doing much at NAB league level and I'd be extremely surprised if they were picked up.

Why am I not shocked?

Some clubs are getting top 10 players from NGA and we get donuts.

Well we got Bedford. Can't think of anyone else.

Absolutely screwed again by the AFL taking away our NT zone and can't recall us doing anything about it.

The system is a rort i agree. Should never have been introduced in the first place.

Mentioned in this article about the kids who missed out on the chance to push their case this year: https://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/afl-draft-2020-the-victorian-smokies-hurt-most-by-nab-season-shutdown/news-story/6c2c4b96dc13feaf9dec6f3f222557b0

Flanker/wingman Deakyn Smith, a natural footballer who played nationals at under-16 level, had worked hard on improving his skills – one of his deficiencies in the past – over the pre-season.

What about that super tall kid who trained with us at the start of the year?

His folks posted here telling us that he was set for a basketball scholarship in the USA. Hopefully covid hasnt ruined this opportunity for him.

The player’s name is Deakin Pereira and he was at training at the club’s last training session for 2019.

His mother @kyliepereira was good enough to report on here how much Deakin enjoyed training and that he was due back early in the new year but was then off to try out in the States as a basketballer. He was projected to grow to 211cm.

Would be interesting to know how it all turned out - he did look massive and given our Covid-19 situation compared with over there, it would be interesting if he gave footy another go.

Amazing, in just paragraph the HS can describe someone as a 'natural footballer' and as having "skills deficiencies'...

As I expected, Melbourne did not nominate Kobi George and Deakyn Smith as Next Generation Academy nominations.

Kobi is in our “backyard”.  We need players of his ilk.  They can do the unbelievable on the footy field.

Well seems the club did not want his "ilk"..

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
