Whitecross to North

North Melbourne’s coaching stocks will be bolstered with the addition of former Hawk, Brendan Whitecross.

Joining the Roos as a development coach as well as a player in the clubs VFL team, Whitecross brings 11 years of AFL experience to the side.

“Brendan will play an instrumental role in helping to develop our younger players,” North GM football Cameron Joyce said.

“He’s always had great versatility, playing forward, back or through the midfield, which will be beneficial.”

“He knows what it takes to be successful and work through adversity and will set a great example for our younger players coming through,” Joyce said.

“Brendan has shown great character, resilience and determination and he will be able to add great value to our team on and off the field.”

Whitecross played 111 AFL games for the Hawks.
