Another “Big” Signing at Quambee

Hi Sainters
For years we have been saying “Why do we only breed small players at North”?
Well this all appears to be changing.
With the recent signings of a couple of big boys, we had yet another last night!
North Ringwood Football Club would like to welcome Kyle Eliott to Quambee.
At only 22 years old and nearly 200cm, Kyle is a fantastic signing.
After playing a lot of junior footy, Kyle decided at 16 to follow his basketball dream.
Kyle spent 4 years in the U.S playing college basketball and returned last year.
After training with Essendon and Coburg late last year, Kyle has made his way to Quambee and will play with the Saints 100% of the time.
Kyle has extremely strong hands, a fantastic leap, and is very quick for a big bloke.
Welcome Kyle & Family, to the mighty Saints.
Bring on Saints Season 2019 !!

Paris Harvie Appointed Saints Coach

It is with great pleasure that the North Ringwood Football Club announces Paris Harvie as our Senior Coach for the 2019 season.

With the resignation of Brett Moyle on the eve of the Pre-season due to work and family commitments, Paris Harvie and Eugene Hansen have been steering the pre-season training program to Christmas.

After advertising the coaching role in late November, we had approximately 15 applicants from across various competitions with varying experience.

After the interviewing process we felt even though the applicants were extremely credible, the work that Paris had done with our group to date, as well as the feedback from all involved, warranted us having a formal chat to Paris in regards to the senior coaching role, even though he didn’t apply for the job.

So after recent discussions we have formally come to an agreement this morning.

Paris has an extensive history both playing and coaching in the Eastern Football League and is a fantastic result for the North Ringwood Football Club.

Along with some recent fantastic signings, this caps off a wonderful December for the NRFC and we look forward to seeing everyone back fit and well when training resumes on 21st January.

Please join us in welcoming Paris and his family to the Quambee Community.

Big Ex Docker Michael Apeness Joins Saints

North Ringwood Football Club is thrilled to announce the big signing of Michael Apeness to Quambee in 2019.

Michael is fresh off Fremantle’s list, after spending 5 years at the Dockers.

Picked 17 in the 2013 draft, Michael made his debut in the number 35 jumper in Round 16, 2014 against Melbourne at TIO Stadium, coming in to replace the injured Matthew Pavlich.

Michael missed large chunks of games due to season ending injuries over his time at Dockers but still played 12 games of AFL at the highest level . Michael’s best stint was this year playing 5 consecutive games in the ruck for the injured Aaron Sandilands.

Michael is 201cm (6ft 7in) and 100kg and only 23 years of age, we look forward to watching Michael for years to come.

Please make Michael and his family welcome to Saints land.

Go Saints!
