Your 2017 Northstars
Thursday, April 13, 2017 - Submitted by Ellie-Marie Watts

The Proski Newcastle Northstars will welcome all new imports this season, but they join a team made up with some very familiar faces.

Robert “Bert” Malloy will captain the Northstars again this season, and Mathew Lindsay will wear the familiar A on his jersey.

However, the other A will be worn by a new leader within the team – Matt Wetini.

Wetini, who has been with the Northstars since 2010, said wearing the A was “an absolute honour”.

“I got a phone call from Frij [Northstars coach Andrew Petrie] a couple weeks back, he was just telling me his thoughts about my pre-season training so far,” Wetini said.

“Eventually he asked if I wanted to be an assistant captain this season.

“I was a little lost for words, to be honest, which is a very rare thing for me!

“It's an absolute honour.

“It's something I'm really excited about and I just can't wait to get the season underway.”

Without further ado, your 2017 Northstars team:
