Chelsea stalwart calls time

Chelsea Big V player, Bridget Keet, has called time on her basketball career.

Chelsea Gulls Big V Women’s player and long-time basketball tragic, Bridget Keet, has decided to call day on her basketball career as a player after Chelsea finish the 2019 Big V season.

Bridget first started playing Big V at Mornington back in 2006 and came across to Chelsea in 2010. From here she had immediate success, as a member of the team that won the Division 2 Women’s title in 2010 and again in 2015, before going on to win the Division 1 Women’s title in 2017.

In that time she has racked up over 240 games and her time at Chelsea has been nothing short of a success.

“Bridget has been such a massive part of Chelsea and in particular the Women’s program,” said Chelsea Stadium Manager, Peter Caspersz. “She has been as great an ambassador of how to play the game and how to train and give 100% at all times regardless of setbacks.”

“Bridget was inspirational in her recovery from major knee surgery, and how she continued to push and train and to even suit up was incredible…she just loves being part of it.

“The club and Big V as a whole could not have asked for a better leader and I know she will not be lost to the game or to Chelsea in retirement. Coaching is something I know she wants to have a crack at, and if her playing knowledge is anything to go by then coaching will be an easy transition for her.

“We wish Bridget the absolute best for the remainder of the season and whatever lays ahead for her, and we congratulate her on an outstanding career.”
