Glenorchy Knights have signed former Taroona player Eli Luttmer for the 2021 NPL Tasmania season.

The 26-year-old midfielder has been playing in Victoria for the past7 years but is returning to Tasmania.

Luttmer went to Victoria to study at university seven years ago.

He had been a member of the Tasmania Institute of Sport team but a serious back injury requiring surgery saw him spend a year recuperating.

He then joined his father, Hugo, as a player at Taroona before moving to Victoria.

He has been teaching health and physical education for grades 7-12 at Epping and joined Pascoe Vale at first.

After two years at Pascoe Vale, he teamed up with former Tasmanian Will Abbott at Bulleen Lions, where he captained the side for a couple of seasons and won a best & fairest award.

Luttmer has spent this weekend in Hobart and returns to Melbourne today before returning to Hobart to live on 21 December.

He is likely to be a holding midfielder for Glenorchy Knights.
