Before our 2022 preseason officially begins next week we would like to formally acknowledge the contribution that Matt Elliott and his family have made to the club over the past two seasons as they return to their home club to help them rejoin the NWFL.
Matt signed on at the Two Blues as a playing Assistant Coach in September 2019 and immediately lifted the standards during the 2020 preseason and, although it was only a shortened season due to COVID, helped push our Seniors back into the finals for the first time in 3 years.
Matt was part of the leadership group this year and was a pivotal cog in helping us reach the Grand Final, ending the year with the Player’s Player Award, showing just how much his teammates value him. Overall Matt played 29 games for the Two Blues, but his impact in his short time here will last a lot longer than that.
We thank Matt, Eash and Arna for being a part of our club, and also congratulate them on the recent addition of baby Grace! All the best back at your home club, we wish you all the best with getting the Saints back on the field, and the family will always be welcome at Dial Park
