DAVID Teague and Michael Gibbons will be the special guest speakers at the Northern Blues’ upcoming President’s Luncheon.
Taking place prior to the Round 16 VFL contest at Preston City Oval, Teague and Gibbons will speak to the room at the Grandstand Function Centre ahead of Northern’s clash with Williamstown.
It will be a homecoming of sorts for both guests, who have enjoyed landmark years in 2019.
The current Carlton interim coach is no stranger to Preston City Oval, having started his coaching journey a decade ago at the Northern Bullants.
Over the course of 2009 and 2010, Teague led the Club to two consecutive Grand Finals, before eventually moving on to be an assistant coach at West Coast. Stints at St Kilda and Adelaide followed, before a return to Carlton sees him now four games into the caretaker coach role.
Joining him will be Michael Gibbons, whose achievements at Williamstown can’t be understated.
A two-time Liston Trophy winner and Norm Goss Medallist at the Seagulls, Gibbons’ outstanding form at VFL level eventually saw him rewarded with a spot on Carlton’s rookie list. Since his arrival, he has played every game and kicked nine goals in as many games.
