Player Bio

Sam Grimley joined the Bombers for the 2016 season and will add another solid option as a key position forward.
Having tied for the VFL's leading goalkicker for the last two seasons, Grimley was unlucky to not get another chance with Hawthorn for 2016. 

Season By Season

Season By Season

An atheletic key-position player, entering the last yeaer of his contract with the Hawks. Failed to play a senior game in 2014 after making his debut and playing three the year before. Was delisted by the Hawks at the end of the season with a guarantee of a rookie berth if not claimed by any other Club.

Season by Season

A project player who has taken time to develop, Grimley made great strides in 2013 and earned his debut against Gold Coast in round nine, booting a goal with his first kick. An athletic and mobile forward who can also change in the ruck, he played another two games, booting a goal in each. At VFL level, Grimley was a key to Box Hill's permiersehip, leading the club's goalkicking. 

Season by Season

The lightly built former junior basketballer came to Hawthorn as a long-term project and, more than three years on, the club will be hoping to see some results, Grimley spent a lot of time close to goal last year, hoping to set himself up as a forward/ruck option. He played six games in Box hill's senior team early in the year but, after breaking his finger, ended the season in the VFL reserves. 

Season by Season

Hawthorn's No.1 selection at the 2009 NAB AFL National Draft spent his first year in the system playing in the development team at the Box Hill Hawks, who won the premiership. The athletic and agile ruckman is still learning the game but made good progress and has plenty of time on his side. He will aim to play regular VFL senior football and add more bulk in 2011.
