Today the Club farewells Will Pearsall, who came to the nib Newcastle Knights in 2016.

The highly competitive Central Coast local spent two seasons with the Knights and took on the role of Reserve Grade captain earlier this season.

The 22-year-old recorded 35 Reserve Grade matches for Newcastle and played a majority of the 2016 season in the halves.

He also got a brief taste of NRL football with three first-grade appearances at hooker and in the halves in 2016 before he notched up 22 Reserve Grade games in 2017.

The handy utility spent his younger years with the Manly Sea Eagles and played for their NYC team from 2012 to 2015.
