Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT - DAMIEN RACTLIFFE

AN­GLE­SEA has landed a sec­ond key re­cruit in the space of a week with Grovedale for­ward Jor­dan Ersk­ine pen­ning his sig­na­ture last night.

The power-for­ward booted 57 goals in 18 games for the Tigers this sea­son but was ac­tive over the off­sea­son, search­ing for a new home.

An­gle­sea held talks with the for­mer Port Ade­laide Mag­pies player shortly af­ter its BFL sea­son wound up and coach Paul Car­son was con­fi­dent the Roos would land the star goal­kicker.

The an­nounce­ment comes af­ter An­gle­sea signed for­mer Syd­ney Swans mid­fielder Matthew O’Dwyer.

The Roos fin­ished sev­enth in the BFL this year with an 8-10 win-loss record.

New Roo: Jor­dan Ersk­ine.
