About Dermott

One of Australian Rules football’s most recognized personalities, Dermott Brereton is an accomplished speaker and highly sought after MC with corporate and sporting groups.

‘The Kid’ broke into his local VFA team, the Frankston Rovers, by 16. He drew immediate attention by kicking 32 goals in first three games. The Hawthorn Football Club were quick to invite him to join, playing under 19s in 1980 and most of 1981. The 1981 season saw him awarded under 19s captaincy and he was later acknowledged as All-Australia in the Teal Cup side.

The following year Brereton kicked five goals in his first senior game drawing the spotlight of the media. He became one of Hawthorn’s most decorated players, playing in eight Vfl/Afl grand finals for four premierships, and five night grand finals. In 1994 he moved to Sydney, playing only a season for the Swans, before a successful return to Melbourne with Collingwood in 1995.

Brereton was simply one of the best the game has seen. His athleticism, physicality and intensity were unmistakeable. He won a club best and fairest in 1985 and represented Victoria in State of Origin nine times.

Following retirement from football, Brereton’s success continued in the media. He was a regular panel member of Channel Nine’s The Footy Show and part host of The Sunday Footy show. He also became a regular reporter on the award winning Getaway. In 2012 he joined Foxtel’s Fox Footy Channel, hosting Fox League Teams.

Brereton has penned two books: ‘Hooked on Football’ and ‘Dermott Brereton’s 101 Favourite Stories’.
