SKOB Football Director, Michael Christian said, “we are absolutely
thrilled that Jarrad, his wife Jackie and family have decided to join
our great Club. Jarrod will obviously add enormous value on the field
with his football prowess but his passion to help develop our younger
players will also be of great benefit to our Club. Our priority is to
continue to develop our young players and this will be enhanced
significantly with Jarrad assistance. We look forward to a long
association with Jarrad and his family.”
“I’m very much looking forward, with my family, to become part of the SKOB community. I still have an urge to play football and importantly a desire to help develop and nurture younger players. I’m very excited about being part of the Club. Jackie and I feel SKOB will provide the best environment for us to transition into the next stage of our lives.”
