The history of the nib Newcastle Knights is kept alive by the many men who pulled have on the red and blue jersey since the Club’s inaugural year in 1988.
Knights TV has tracked down some of the best through the years to see where they are now and what their lives look like after footy.
Marc Glanville gave a decade of loyal service to the nib Newcastle Knights.
The menacing forward recorded 188 NRL games in the red and blue, from the Club’s inaugural year in 1988 to that triumphant grand final victory in 1997’where he played his last game.
“I had ten wonderful years at the Club and so many great memories there,” smiled Glanville.
“Not only that, the mates that I have made are for life.”
Born and bred in Wagga Wagga, Glanville made his way to Sydney before getting his first grade break with the St George Illawarra Dragons in 1986.
Just two years later he moved to Newcastle and it was there he found a home at the Knights before finally travelling overseas to play out his illustrious football career.
“When I finished with the Knights, I went over to England and had two years at Leeds, and I really enjoyed my time there,” he said.
“All up it is quite a long period... I played for 15 years.
“I had a good career, a wonderful career so I can’t complain about anything I have done and I’d do it all again if I could.”
But the love of the red and blue continued years beyond hanging up the boots as an active Old Boys Member with the Club.
“I guess as we get older, we have our own lives to lead and work commitments but it is great to catch up with them when we do catch up," Glanville commented.
“It was terrific this year with the 20-year anniversary of the grand final win, so I got to catch up with all the boys from the team and it was great reliving those memories.”
