A few more big boys coming down to Port - with all these talls that Port is signing for season 2020 it wouldn't seem too crazy a idea to use the temporary nickname of giants. Heres a run down of the latest signings from North Port oval.

195 cms Dirk Koenan from Gold Coast Suns - Dirk is a forward who played 16 games with the suns in their NEAFL side - at 19 years of age Dirk shows a promising future.

People say Port supporters are often confused but just to confuse things even more at the Borough a 3rd O Sullivan has signed for the club. 193 cm Jerremy O Sullivan comes to Port from Calder Cannons. O Sullivan recorded the best running vertical jump at the combine and is another forward.

Another ex Calder Cannon player to come to Port is Monton Connel who had averaged a impressive 21.3 possesions per game.

Another young signing (at only 18 years of age) is Zak Pretty who has joined Port from Eastern Ranges. Zak averaged 25 disposals last season and is a inside midfielder.

The list is just about complete for season 2020 but their should be a few more announcements to complete what looks like a strong squad for Port. I feel a ex AFL player or two would assist to make a strong 2020 side even stronger !

Hey mega,in my humble Port is running a distant 3rd behind Willy and Werribee in the recruitment stakes.

I agree Cgull, Port have recruited no real big names, but I do think it has been a more targeted approach to address 'positional deficiencies'. I think if the spirit amongst the group is good then we will be right up there.

I still rate Werribee as the team to beat from a standalone perspective.

Must agree NorthPort Werribee appeared to recruit very well with Mark Williams having the ability to get several big name players.

Dont forget as CGull suggests that your old sparring partner in Willy will be right up there unce again !

I can neither agree or disagree with you Cgull as I haven't seen who Williamstown has picked up, however I am surprised as I imagine both those clubs would have needed to recruit extremelly well to put Port a distant 3rd. Port has picked up some very handy players including , McCartney, Jansen (ex north captain), Holmes - (runner up in best and fairest) etc 

Still looking for that big name ec AFL player, perhaps a ex AFL forward would be handy.

Not a player movement, but Port Melburnehas  announced the departure of Jenny Pryor, accepting another position outside the club.

Port has been unsuccessful in appointing a long term GM since the retirement of Barry Kidd. I wonder if Jen Pryor will be replaced or if the GM duties will be absorbed.

Digs Jennifer Pryor was GM taking the vacant position left by Glen Robinson.

She represented the club in many dealings with the local council and had a big part to play in the creation of the Borough Womens Academy. She was officially given the roll just less than 12 months ago however as vice president she put in a few months work performing the GM duties until she was officially appointed.

Some one will be appointed, even if it as a short term measure until the job is re-advertised.
