We’re getting closer and closer to making our mark on the competition. 

With Brett Ratten’s troops working to the bone, Peta Searle’s women inching towards an historic debut and sporting royalty swinging by RSEA Park, this past month has had it all. 

Our boys have been non-stop on the training track, refining their game and improving their skills to enter Season 2020 with a bang. 

Promising results from the club’s post-Christmas 3km time trial has meant the red, white and black can hit the skills-based training hard in preparation for the Marsh Community Series. 

St Kilda’s nine recruits also took the next step in becoming fully-fledged Saints after being handed their playing guernseys

Our girls have been just as busy as Round 1 of the 2020 AFLW Season fast approaches. 

A promising hit-out against Carlton in the club’s first outing last weekend highlighted our young Saints’ talent and flair, with Peta Searle’s women intent on backing up their performance against Gold Coast this Saturday. 

Rhiannon Watt, Cat Phillips and Kate Shierlaw wrote themselves into the record books after being named the club’s inaugural captains, while a landmark joint-training session with the men’s side before Christmas also marked a significant moment in the Saints’ history. 

The philosophy of two teams, one club, continued to resonate after St Kilda launched the Saints Bushfire Appeal in an effort to raise much-needed funds for those affected by the crisis

Cricket legend and St Kilda fan Wasim Akram visited RSEA Park to pledge his support, with all proceeds going towards immediate and subsequent relief efforts. 

It’s been hectic so far, but it’s only going to get busier as Round 1 for our men’s and women’s sides draws closer.

And we can’t wait.
