Harley Bennell’s mother sent trolls a harsh message after her AFL star son was rushed to hospital after a ‘drunken night’ on the Gold Coast – some just hours after announcing his retirement following a COVID-19 violation

The Melbourne Demons player was ordered to leave Queensland after breaking the club bubble to visit an ‘unapproved local’ in Maroochydore on September 19

Despite his orders from the AFL, Bennell stayed on the Gold Coast with friends while the demons tried to organize his flight back to Perth

Bennell was reportedly taken to hospital on Monday evening after police were called to the Aria building in Broadbeach following reports of a disorder around 8 p.m.

Sources told the Courier-Mail that Bennell was reportedly heavily intoxicated after celebrating the end of his AFL career and the officers decided to call an ambulance

‘Very disappointing knowing my son is still stuck in Queensland with no family support,’ she wrote on Facebook

Earlier Melbourne CEO Gary Pert said Bennell’s actions were selfish and a ‘blatant violation’ of AFL’s COVID-19 protocols

‘He not only put himself, his teammates and the competition at risk, but he failed to live up to the values ​​of Melbourne Football Club’

Upon learning of a potential violation, the demons immediately notified the AFL, which investigated the case

AFL General Counsel Andrew Dillon has said AFL Protocols are the gaming license of the competition and anyone who violates them will be held to account

“ Harley knew the rules and could have put her club and the competition at risk on the eve of a final campaign, ” said M Dillon

The midfielder and former No2 draft pick took to social media to mark the time of his 88-game roller coaster career, which began in 2011 at the Gold Coast

Posting a photo on Instagram of himself in a jumper at his three AFL clubs – the Suns, Fremantle and the Demons – Bennell said it was the “ 10 best years of my life ”

Bennell started his AFL career with the Gold Coast Suns (pictured) where he had a breakout season in 2012

Bennell looked set to land a new contract with the club ahead of indiscretion after appearing in five games in his debut season at Melbourne

Injuries kept him from playing just two games in four years at Fremantle and he left the Dockers in July 2019

Melbourne hailed Bennell’s retirement, posting on social media: ‘I wish you all the best for the future, Harley’

Bennell played his best football at the Suns, enjoying a strong season in 2012 when he finished second to the club’s best and fairest behind Gary Ablett Jnr

Discipline issues saw him fall out of favor at Gold Coast and he was traded to Fremantle at the end of the 2015 season

The couple are proud of their daughter Carter-Ivy, with whom he often shares happy snaps on her Instagram profiles

Kayleen said she was her son’s ‘number one fan’ after announcing he would be leaving the AFL

“Well my son you started this journey so many years ago and now is the time to leave behind the dear friends you have come to know” she wrote on Facebook

‘It seemed to me that it was just more than a game for you, the passion and love you have for the sport was showing through

‘You set the highest standards for yourself and for others, showing it too when you have the chance’

Kayleen said her son encountered ‘so many obstacles along the way’ but he was not deterred

“Thank you my son for all the great memories and be proud and great for all that you have overcome” she wrote

‘Now I pray God will keep you safe and well wherever you go surrounded by your loved ones I love you Your number 1 fan your mother’
