Forward-turned-defender Hamp reaches 100 with Tigers

Friday, June 16, 2017 - 3:00 PM - by Chris Pike

THERE is more reason for Claremont to celebrate in its second game back at the redeveloped Claremont Oval this Saturday with forward-turned-defender Anton Hamp reaching his 100-game milestone with the Tigers.

Hamp came through as a talented colts player at Claremont, was picked up by West Coast as a rookie in 2011 and was viewed as a key forward the Tigers could build upon in the future.

The problem was when he was receiving his first chances in 2011 and 2012, it was a dominant Claremont team and that was nowhere more so than in a forward-line that included Chad Jones, Beau Maister, Tom Lee, Paul Medhurst, Ian Richardson and Gerrick Weedon.
