Message from the Club President

It has been a busy start to the year and we are excited and ready for what season 2018 has to offer. It has also been great to welcome many new players and their families to the Knights.

Once again we start the year with a Mens Championship premiership title to defend. With some very good performances in the NPL Summer Series and winning the Summer Cup, we look forward to the challenges ahead, in particular the Lakoseljac Cup Round of 16 game versus Olympia Warriors on Monday.

James Sherman our Technical Director has been very busy and is doing a fantastic job running the Knights Junior Program (formerly called SAP) and overseeing the development of our youth players and coaches.

Our youth teams have had a solid pre-season and it’s pleasing to see their growth and improvement. Unfortunately new lighting at Prince of Wales Bay hasn’t been installed in time for our season but we look forward to that work being completed soon.

Thank you to our youth coaches for 2018 - Scott Horne, Rodney Tonks, Teddy Kadisha (U13’s), Josh Dingjan & Tom Sherman (U14’s), Les Richardson (U15’s), Robbie Huigsloot & Tom Huigsloot (U16’s).

Our juniors start the week after Easter and thanks to sponsors Goodman Fielder - makers of Wonder White bread, Roberts Real Estate and Data Processers, they will be looking fantastic in a new strip this year.

Our womens team have also started training and are looking forward to another great season.

Thanks to Wonderful Wardrobes, we are pleased to announce our club trophies will now be displayed in a new cabinet at KGV. We are also hopeful to send a team to the 44th Croatian Soccer Association of Australia tournament in Gold Coast later in the year.

All club merchandise can now be purchased online through Veto which is handy for our players and supporters.

We thank our sponsors for their ongoing support, please support them whenever you can - they are Roberts Real Estate, Coogans, Wonderful Wardrobes and Screens, Coffee Club Northgate and Bank of Us. Thanks also to Warren Ross Accounting and Chris at KP Sales who also provide fantastic support.

And finally a big thank you to our hard working committee - have a great season everyone, regards Tony
