Another Young Lion Joins The Pride

The Coburg Football club has continued to add young talent to its list with the signing of Josh Watson.

The 19-year-old joins the club from the Northern Knights where he played NAB League football for the last three years.

Watson played 12 matches during his time at the Northern Knights including four matches this year.

The 182cm midfielder has the ability to play both on the inside and outside in the midfield and averaged 20.5 disposals, 10.5 kicks and 3.3 tackles in the NAB League in 2021.

Watson said he was looking forward to playing for the club next season.

“I’m super excited to have signed with Coburg for 2022. I can’t wait to get to know the players and staff and hopefully get some games under my belt during the season,” he said.

Coburg General Manager, Sebastian Spagnuolo, said that Watson was a welcome addition to the side.

“We are excited to work with Josh and have him join the club. He’s already a strong bodied midfielder for his age and will add to our midfield depth nicely as a developing player.”
