#33 Our previous administration was inept to say the least. We finally got one of our own at the helm and now look at us. One of the best teams statewide. Morton Mamacus Digiovanni and the rest are not looking forward to the croatian juggernaut coming into to town in 2019.


This is absolutely disgusting comment to make and slightly slanderous.

There were some hard working people on the previous committee that did their best with no help from the Croatian community or any major sponsors.

They tried tirelessly to get both on board.

It wasn't until the v league licence was not renewed that the current committee and sponsors jumped in.

Perhaps if they had of helped earlier then they may not have been demoted.

Credit were credit is due the club is on the way back good luck to them moving forward but please be respectful to the past president and his committee.

Reading these posts have been disappointing to say the least , the Knights have a strong history , we would not have our history without all past and present hard working committee members, football is a game that should bring us all together win ,lose or draw, Yes we all like to win and it makes us feel good, but let's look at the big picture why we all do this, for me it's to keep the game alive , let our young ones grow through the club and understand what others have given to keep it going,2018 is young and should be a good year for football for all clubs

#36 What an absolute disgraceful insult to the hard work done by the previous committee by calling them inept. To say it took having “one of your own” at the helm to make all the difference is ethnicist. The previous committee members were the best that nominated at the time. Where were “your own” then?

#36 trust us we really don’t care about knights as $$$ is about to destroy the little culture that you have left .
Only culture is on the committee and that is the same as it was many years ago as we all remember .

If Knights are so great how come they were so bad when they were in the NPL?


Try and remember who the coach was, and there is your answer.


Um.... because they had no money!
