Port Melbourne have pulled off another massive recruiting coup ahead of season 2019 with the signing of ex-Western Bulldogs and Sydney midfielder Patrick Veszpremi.
Now 29 years of age, Veszpremi, played 23 games across six seasons with the Swans and Bulldogs between 2008 and 2013.
Since then, Veszpremi has spent time at Pascoe Vale Football Club and Doutta Stars, and been a star performer for both clubs.
Keen to once again prove himself at VFL level and achieve team success, Veszpremi at his best can be expected to be a damaging player in the red and blue.
Football Manager Anthony Piccolo said Veszpremi could prove to be a “real weapon” for the Borough.
“Patty is incredibly versatile, he’s got unbelievable foot skills, can read the play and his AFL experience will be a real asset for us,” Piccolo said.
“We’re really excited about what he might be able to bring.”
Veszpremi, initially taken with pick 11 by the Swans in the 2007 Draft, has always been a highly-touted and impressive prospect, who can be expected to slot in to the club’s 2019 playing group and prove to be an extremely valuable addition.
We welcome Patty to the Borough, and wish him all the very best of luck!
