Bentleigh Football Netball Club is delighted to announce Chris Johnson as a new recruit for season 2017.

Chris played 46 AFL games for Melbourne and Carlton from 2004 to 2010 before playing at a high level in various local leagues.

The 29-year-old will come on board in a dual role as a player and as our assistant forwards coach and will play a key part in building on the success that saw us reach a Division 1 Grand Final in 2016.

We welcome Chris to the BFNC family and look forward to welcoming more recruits before the season is underway.
