The nib Newcastle Knights is excited to reach 13,000 Members, with long time Knights supporter Andrew Russell the lucky 13,000th member.

To his surprise, Andrew purchased four Platinum 8-game adult memberships to help the Club reach a milestone that is close to a thousand more Memberships than last year's total.

“It is nice to hear and good to be able to contribute to the Club,” Andrew said.

“I considered buying some tickets at the start of the season but let it go at the time and when the opportunity came to buy Memberships for the remainder of the season, I thought it was a good idea,” he said.

“It's something I wanted to share with my team here at work and my family and would like to head to a few games before the end of the season.

“I thought Platinum 8-game Memberships were the best value and it would be a decent contribution to the Club.”

A proud Novocastrian, Andrew has always behind behind the red and blues.

“I have been in Newcastle most of my life and went for the Knights ever since they began, going to some of the first games all through their glory years,” said Andrew.

“I hadn’t managed to get to a game for the last couple of years or so but I always wanted to be a part of the local team.

“I think it is important that people do get behind the Knights, it’s our local team.

“To have a local team in the national competition is a great opportunity for anybody to get on board and make the most of it.”

There are still a large range of partial season passes available for all fans. Don’t miss the opportunity to save and get out and support your team.
