Chris Droutsas will be back at Kingston Heath in 2023, having re-signed with the Bentleigh Greens.
Droutsas returned to the club from Eastern Lions during the 2022 season and quickly established himself as a reliable player in the starting XI.

He created six chances across the 11 games he played and scored one goal in a 3-0 win over his former club, Eastern Lions.
Droutsas brings plenty of versatility to new coach Alfredo Costantino, and is able to play on either wing or through the middle. He also filled in capably at right-back towards the back end of the season as the Greens managed a hectic schedule of games.
