Glenorchy Knights midfielder Jacob Hebert is relishing the prospect of playing the NPL Tasmania competition in 2019.

“We’re training well and looking forward to it after playing in the Southern Premier League for the past three seasons,” Herbert said at a media conference today at the North Hobart Oval.

“We’re looking forward to being back in the big league and we know we’ll give teams a run for their money.”

Herbert said Knights had a lot to prove and the team should be competitive.

“You always want to prove the doubters wrong,” he said.

“I definitely think we can beat teams.”

Herbert has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons but said he was now fit and ready to go.

“I’m feeling as good as I have since before I first did my hamstring all those years ago,” he said.

“I’m pretty confident about the coming season.”

“Our squad has been pretty good and we’ve had a few new faces, but not too many.

“We’re pretty confident with the squad that we have.”

Herbert said the change of coach from Franco Previdi to James Sherman had not affected the club at all as Sherman had been assistant coach last season.

Glenorchy Knights have a bye in the opening round of the 2019 NPL Tasmania campaign.

There opening game is on 9 March away to Riverside Olympic in Launceston.

How do you think the Knights will go, Walter? The bye will be annoying for the fans.

I reckon they'll hold there own and be in mid-table, Brian.
