IN football terms, the Frankston Dolphins are a small fish in a big pond.
But the VFL club continues to churn out AFL players, with Kyle Martin and Leigh Osborne the latest Dollies to find their way on to league lists.
Martin, 22, who won Frankston's best and fairest this year, was snapped up by Collingwood in today's rookie draft.
And Osborne, also 22, was taken by the Gold Coast Suns.
Their rise to the big league continues Frankston's reputation as a football factory.
In the past three years, a pod of Dolphins has been snapped up by AFL clubs Michael Hibberd (Essendon), Mark Baguley (Essendon), Dylan Van Unen (Essendon), and now Martin and Osborne.
"It probably shows that we're the club of choice," Frankston coach Simon Goosey said.
"There are a lot of kids who want to come down and hopefully they can see an opportunity."
