Season 2020 just got better for Magpie fans with Zac Webster officially re-signing, and the former Hawthorn speedster believes it’s going to be one of the best years yet for this storied football club.
The livewire forward-turned-defender had a brilliant 2019, switching ends and quickly becoming one of the TSL’s elite backmen, highlighted by a breathtaking 19-possession, 19-pressure act and 6 score involvement effort in the Bingley-Linton Cup.
Webster said he didn’t have to think long before recommitting to Glenorchy for 2020, and there’s a simple reason why.
One of the TSL’s deadliest players, and one of the competition’s forgotten stars, have re-signed with Glenorchy for the next two years as momentum continues to build for season 2020.
Callen Daly was the TSL’s most dangerous small forward in 2018 but went under the radar, however this year he made the competition sit up and take notice with a blistering season.
Daly nailed 27 goals while splitting time between the midfield and forward line, with many of those majors the equal of what Eddie Betts or Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti produce on the AFL stage.
TSL superstar and 2018 Roy Cazaly Medallist Daniel Joseph has officially re-signed with the club until the end of 2021, all but locking in a special milestone for the mercurial left-footer in the next two seasons.
Joseph ruptured his ACL in round 2 this year, his 131st game for Glenorchy, leaving him 19 appearances short of life membership. But with his rehabilitation on schedule, 'DJ' could potentially join star teammates like Jaye Bowden, Josh Arnold, Brayden Webb, Matt Dilger and Rhys Mott in the esteemed club in 2020.
