The NZ KNights have a farely experienced team, most being over the age of 25!

Danny Hay - 30
Steve Fitzsimmons - 28
Darren Bazely - 32
Sean Devine - 32
Frank van Eijs - 33
Neil Emblen - 33
Noah Hickey - 26
John Tabmouras - 26
Danny Milosevic - 26

The under 25s are:

Glen Moss - 22
Josh Maguire - 24
Naoki Imaya - 24

It will be interesting to see who the Knights will sign in the next couple of weeks. I think a little young blood would do them good. On the fitness side, the appointment of Kenny McMillan will help keep the old men fit.

We've gone with experience. Most of our squad is in the 24-30 age bracket and that will be a problem in several years time, it isn't a major concern yet. You can tell the direction the club is going for when we are looking to bring back Tony Vidmar and John Aloisi in a few years time.

I beleive every club beleives it can win the tite in the first season.

Melbourne has taken a differnt rout. We want to win the in the opening year, of course. However, it seems Merrick is is trying to get a young squad together in an attempt to make a serious title shot in a couple of years.

Well the Glory squad is an experienced one.

Jovanic in goals is 20 or so. Petkovic is likely to sign and he's around 30.

The defence features Horsley and Miller both over 30, I think Ante Kovacevic is around that age as well. Harnwell would be close to that. Tarka at 23 is one of the younger ones in defence. Coyne is early 20's.

Midfield is mid 20's I guess. Colosimo, Vasilevski, Sekulovski, Ishida. McMahon jr is early 20's. Celeski and Ward are both Under 20 players.

The strikeforce features a couple of grandpas in Young and Despotovski. Fa'arodo and Teggert are young though.
