Anton Tohill: Career
Anton Tohill, 21, joined the Melbourne Club in 2018 on a two-year rookie deal and was given a further 12-month contract last December.
He got the contract when he impressed the coaches at the AFL combine In UCD and then at another trial at the AFL Academy in the USA.
His career was put on pause when he suffered a concussion, a quad injury, and tore his hip rotator during his debut campaign. He then went home for Christmas and damaged the skin off his shin after falling off a treadmill.
The outbreak of Covid-19 saw the AFL suspended while the VFL, the reserve league where Tohill had been getting game time, was canceled entirely.
Thus, when he got the news that he would be played last Friday, he made his official AFL Debut on Collington FC. He had a very emotional reaction.
The tears were flowing as Derry’s Anton Tohill found out he’d make his AFL debut this Friday night.
This would have been the aim when he moved Down Under three years ago and it’s clear how much it means to him 👏pic.twitter.com/AcOqjZgM34
