The Northern Knights are an Australian rules football club playing in the TAC Cup, an under-18 competition in Victoria, Australia. They are based in Preston, representing the northern suburban area of Melbourne.
Justin joined the Northern Knights for the 2017 TAC Cup Season. Justin brings a wealth of experience to the role as a former TAC Cup Premiership Coach of the Oakleigh Chargers. Additionally for 10 years he was the Yarra JFL’s Junior Development Manager and a head coach of their U15 Representative Championship Team.
Brett Potter in his seventh year at the Northern Knights as the Youth Academy Squad Head Coach. Brett brings a wealth of junior football experience as coordinator of the NFL Interleague Program.
Christian Farchione is in his top age player for the Knights who has played seven games this season. He recently played in Marcellin College’s Grand Final win against Ivanhoe Grammar.
“To win the grand final was something I’ve always dreamed of. It’s the perfect way to cap off year 12 at school.”
Farchione says a change in culture is the reason behind the Knights solid season.
“This year has been great, the change the club went through during the pre season was enormous and the way everyone responded was great.”
“Now we just need to finish it off strongly and make a finals push.”

The Northern Knights proudly support the TAC and its’ Towards Zero program.
Towards Zero is a vision for a future free of deaths and serious injuries on our roads. It acknowledges that as humans, we make mistakes. But when those mistakes happen on our roads we come off second best, because our bodies aren’t designed to absorb high impact speeds. They never have been and never will be.
That’s why we need to ensure we have a safe road system in place. A system that protects us from our own mistakes and those of others. A system that will change road safety for good.
