The first session will be held at the Club's homeground at
Richard Guelfi Reserve, and players should bring along their
runners, boots and a water bottle to each session.
The 2018 season is poised to be a big one for the Saints, with a
renewed enthusiasm and desire to play finals football. While
there is no mistake that there is a lot of hard work ahead of
us, players should be ready to commit themselves early and set
ourselves up for a big year.
All players are encouraged to bring along their mates and
improve the depth of the club - the more players, the better.
Kingsley's Coming Home
The Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Kingsley
Hunter as League coach for the 2018 season.
Kingsley's association at Delawney Street began as a 10-year
old, playing junior football for the former Osborne Park Junior
Football Club. After finishing his juniors, Kingsley was signed
by Claremont Football Club, where he played 49 games and 114
goals for the Tigers.
In 1995, he was drafted by the Fremantle Dockers, where he
played 41 games and kicked 86 goals over the next four years,
including an AFL Rising Star nomination in 1996. He moved to the
Western Bulldogs in 1999, adding another 57 games and 28 goals,
and finally finishing his AFL career at Hawthorn in 2003, where
he reached the 100-game mark. Kingsley returned to WA in 2004
and played a further two seasons in the WAFL for East Fremantle,
notching up 33 games and 49 goals for the Sharks.
Following retirement from professional football, Kingsley was
enticed back to where it all began, to finish his playing career
at the Stirling Football Club. Kingsley played 82 games and
kicked 77 goals for the Saints between 2006 and 2012. Kingsley
also coached the Saints for 95 games between 2008 and 2012,
including a peak fourth position finish in A-Grade in 2009.
Looking for a new challenge, Kingsley joined arch-rivals
Kingsway Roos as their League coach in 2013. Over the next five
years, he guided the Roos from C1-Grade to B-Grade and now
A-Grade, with a premiership, two grand final appearances and a
69% success rate over 105 games.
The Club is very pleased to welcome Kingsley back to the Saints,
and hopes that he can replicate the success of previous years in
the 2018 season.
