Glenorchy Knights beat University in friendly

A depleted Glenorchy Knights overcame University 4-3 in a pre-season friendly at Olinda Grove this morning.

Up to half the Knights side were in Launceston attending a charity function and the side had no recognised goalkeeper. Outfield players were rotated in goal during the match.

And, Knights' Corey Smith was sent off by referee Sean Collins.

Amadu Koroma netted twice for Knights, whose other goals came from Jyerem Vienna-Hallam and Eddie Mohamed.

Julian Proud netted a hat-trick for University, his third goal coming from the penalty spot.

Knights will be losing the promising Jacob Gordon this season as he will be studying at university in Western Australia.

where was ben peter? thought he would be in goals? at training on friday I thought Eammon picked Benny to play? I thought we had more than one goalie?

Lots of Talent Kent, on ability yes will keep spot. Needs to improve workrate and commitment if has aspirations to be one of top players in league, definetely has the right coach to get him there.
Fair effort by Proud to notch 3, he would have been licking his lips seeing outfield players in goal.

Hey Walter any truth in rumour that Clarence brought an interstate coach down last week to take session work with coaches on defensive formation and shape for 2009, heard Brown - Edwards - Previdi all in attendance

Yes, it is true. It was David Smith.

Personally dont think young kent has the talent or the fitness to make a go of it at Knights.
Spoke to Knights senior coach a few months ago and he didnt rate him then, but then things change dont they.

shane kent will be a regular starter with knights. has a new eagar attitude and wants a fresh start so should be a player to watch this year. fitness no worries as he has been training regular plus have heard traing with northern rangers when he heads back up north for uni. give the kid a break

The young player who netted one of the goals for Knights in the friendly against Uni is JYEREN VIENNA-HALLAM.

All fixed, Anonymous. It's a pity some clubs cannot provide accurate information. Thanks for letting me know and the correct names and spellings are now in place.
