SUANFC is sad to announce the retirement of three players who have contributed greatly to our club.
Max Wilson joined SUANFC after a 4 year-stint with Eastlake in Canberra. Wilson played a total of 41 games for the Students in both the Premier Division and NEAFL sides, kicking 11 goals.
Regarded as one of the best ruckman in the NEAFL, Wilson unfortunately broke his ankle during the Student’s Round 12 clash with the Gold Coast Suns, forcing the 26 year-old into an early retirement.
The well-known Aron “Spider” Everett has also decided to hang up the boots after 10 seasons and 128 games across the grades at SUANFC.
Spider was seen as the premier ruckman in Sydney AFL for many years, thanks to his unreal athleticism and tap work.
Unable to play more than 11 games this season due to work commitments, Spider still managed 5 mentions in the best during 2016.
SUANFC defender Gabe Orr will also not return to the field in 2017 following a string of concussions during the 2016 season.
Orr, who was elevated to the Student’s NEAFL Leadership Group this season is a favourite among the playing group for the way he’s goes about his football on the field, and his genuine character off it.
SUANFC thanks Max, Aron and Gabe for their efforts, commitment and pursuit of excellence during their time at the club.
