New Season brings on changes at North Geelong Warriors

Posted: Wednesday, March 30th, 2011. Categories: News.


New first team coach Ante Skoko takes the reins from Vinko Buljubasic who enjoyed the last three years at the helm of the Warriors.

We thank Vinko for his efforts and wish him every well wish for his future endeavours. We are sure that whichever club he ends up at will benefit from his experience.

With Ante Skoko at the helm we can expect to see a continuation of the club’s development of the up and coming players. New arrivals in Nathan Long (Melb Knights) and Connor Reddan (Richmond) have been added to the squad and are showing their qualities, Damian Morrel and Zel Vranjic are still undergoing treatment for injury and will be a few weeks away before returning to the team.

Newly appointed Vice Captain Robbie Zadworny has had a lively pre season and will be a good leader to add to the experience of Mijo Trupkovic.

The pre season form of youngster Nathan Cook has earned him a starting line up in a few practice matches so we could see a lot more of him this year and Matthew Demo has found the target in recent matches and a timely confidence boost for him leading into the road trip to Langwarrin in Round 1.

All in all an active pre season with lots of game time including the successful City of Greater Geelong
