Vale, Danny Frawley

The red, white and black came together as one to acknowledge the life and times of the universally-loved Danny Frawley with a special video tribute.

Andrew Bassat

St Kilda Football Club President Andrew Bassat addresses the room, thanking Alan Richardson for his enormous contribution to the Saints, along with the Club Board, staff, volunteers and loyal members who are the lifeblood of the red, white and black.

"We saw players such as Jack Steele, Jack Billings and Jade Gresham raise the bar. Others such as Rowan Marshall, Hunter Clark and Josh Battle - all with less than 50 games - emerged not only as champions of the club, but stars of the competition." - President Andrew Bassat.

But even with the many positives, Bassat implored there is a great deal left to do.

"The hard word of everyone at the club gives us cause for optimism, but we can't ignore there's still work to do."

Brett Ratten

Welcomed to the stage with a thunderous applause, Senior Coach Brett Ratten was grateful for the opportunity to lead the red, white and black into the future.

"I'm so looking forward to coaching the St Kilda Football Club and so honoured to get another crack at it." - Brett Ratten.

He acknowledged the silver lining amid a season full of significant injury and sweeping changes, noting Seb Ross, Callum Wilkie and Rowan Marshall for their extraordinary seasons.

"With adversity, we had opportunity."

But there's still plenty more to do, and Ratten urged the red, white and black to hit the ground running come day one of the pre-season.

"Our time is to rise now, to create the foundation for success."
