Congratulations Nick Carnell

I understand he has now announced his retirement. He is leaving just as the club is really starting to fire.

He'd been during one of the clubs lowest ebbs and it's great to see him able to enjoy recent success.

Spot on NorthPort, I reckon he's been there 10 years through thick and thin.

He's gone from a grubby little tagger to one of the competition's statesman. A real shame he's retiring, but congratulations to him for helping guide Coburg into a position of strength.

Has been a great player. Hope he can play finals this year to finish up. Nick Carnell would not have been out of place in the rough and tough days of VFA footy throughout the 70s and 80s.

Coburg have put together a nice tribute to Nick, worth a look:
