1 Playing statistics to end of 2009 season .

Brent "Beamer" Moloney (born 28 January 1984) is an Australian rules footballer. Originating from Warrnambool, Moloney played U/18s in the TAC Cup for the Geelong Falcons. He was drafted in the 2003 pre-season draft, and made his debut with Geelong Football Club in round 14, 2003. Moloney was traded to the Melbourne Demons following the 2004 AFL season.[1]

He is known for his hardness at the ball, ability to win kicks and his preference for long driving kicks into the forward line. After a brilliant first season with the Demons, injury sidelined him for much of the next three seasons, seeing him play only playing 27 games. He injured his shoulder in Melbourne's Round 11 match against Collingwood in 2008, sidelining him for the rest of the season. Following a successful recovery from shoulder surgery, he was able to train injury-free for the whole of the pre-season,[2] and he went on to play every game for the season finding his form back with many consistent performances. His return to his consistent best in 2009 was highlighted by his career-best statistics in every category except kicks - he had the most number of disposals, handballs, goals and marks of any season in his career to that point.[1]

Moloney supported the Demons as a child and his hero was Allen Jakovich.
