Season by Season

Season by Season

Simpkin had another stellar year for the Box Hill Hawks winning their best and fairest award but was unable to break into the senior team.
The talented midfielder was delisted at the end of the season after playing 33-games for the Hawks, including in the 2013 Grand Final.

Season by Season

Made the sub’s role his own in 2014, able to come on the ground and immediately make a contribution with his ability to hunt the footy. The hard-at-it midfielder was squeezed out of the Grand Final side once Cyril Rioli returned, an unfortunate end to a season in which the Hawks believed he played better than 2013 when he won a premiership medal. Simpkin has resolved to become an automatic best-22 player this year.

 

Season by Season

Signed by the Hawks as a delisted free agent at the end of 2012 after being let go by Geelong, Simpkin capped an excellent first season in brown and gold by playing in the Box Hill VFL premiership and Hawthorn's AFL premiership within six days. A hard-at-it midfielder, the Colac product was called into the Grand Final team as the substitute after his standout performance in the VFL decider. 

Season by Season

Simpkin signed with the Hawks in Novemeber as a delisted free agent after being an unlucky casualty of Geelong's rookie list squeeze. The 25-year-old impressed in his four games with the Cats in 2011 and also made it back-to-back best and fairest for the Club's VFL team. A good runner who can kick goals, he will be used in the midfield and at half-forward.
