Northern Knight Local Legend's Night

The Northern Knights celebrated 25 Years in the TAC Cup on Thursday Night, with the TAC celebrating our local legend Dom Conte, former Knight Matthew Kruezer also came back to the club for the night. 

In a fantastic night, Kreuzer emphasised the importance of not being a player who wants to go out and kick 5 and have 40 touches each week but be a player who puts the team rst.

Kreuzer said you cant just get by on talent but you have to work hard as well and be that team plater, who plays his role each week to make the team be er. Kreuzer also expressed that as a young player dont forget to enjoy your footy and have fun doing it.

But this night was about our local legend trainer Dom Conte who has been at the club 16 years now and is one of the most loved people at the Northern Knights.

Talent Manager Rhy Gieschen couldnt speak more highly of Dom and what does for the development of our players, having quality people like Dom around, hes such a real leader and mentor for those young kids

Doms friendly smile and famous upwards handshake are one of the rst things you no ce when you meet Dom, he loves this club and we love having him at the Knights.

Conte had this to say My favourite part of the job, is watching these kids going through the 3 of 4 years in the sys- tem and then watching them get dra ed....Im like a mother hen on dra day, I sit there with a pen and paper and some mes even shed some tears, they are like my kids almost.

This club means everything to me, Ive been here for a long me and Ill probably still be here in my 80’s

Congratulations Dom.
