Amadu Koroma, the Glenorchy Knights striker-cum-midfielder, is on his way to Melbourne in two weeks’ time to trial with Melbourne Knights.

Koroma will be with Melbourne Knights for about a month as they do their pre-season training.

He will return to Tasmania when Melbourne Knights come to Hobart to play a tournament over a weekend which will involve South Hobart and Glenorchy Knights.

“By then, I should know whether or not I have a contract with Melbourne Knights,” Koroma said today.


Victoria Woods has been re-elected as president of the South Hobart Football Club.

South Hobart had their AGM last Thursday.

Jed Donohue and Paul Geeves are the vice-presidents.

The treasurer is Tracey Gofton and the secretary Rachael Oddie.

Ian Paulin is the club’s public officer and the catering manager is Lee Quigley.

The committee members are Moreeta Pennicott, Georgina Nikitaris, Jimmy James and Noel Clark.
