BFL: SEAGULLS TO GO IT ALONE

The son of former Geelong spearhead Larry, Donohue spent two years on the Cats’ list after being taken in the 2007 National Draft was as a father-son selection.

He departed Kardinia Park at the end of 2009 and returned to Grovedale, helping the Tigers to their lone GFL grand final appearance in 2013 and a preliminary final in 2016.

Donohue joined Geelong Amateur for a season in 2018 before replacing Mark McDowell at Inverleigh ahead of the 2019 season.

The Hawks finished the home-and-away season in fourth spot. They defeated East Geelong in the elimination final before being beaten after the siren by Werribee Centrals in the following week’s first semi-final.

Donohue is the second former Cat to re-sign with his club. Kane Tenace committed to a second season at Geelong Amateur on Tuesday.
