North Melbourne Football Club stalwart Darren Crocker will be the guest speaker at the 2014 Kyabram Sportstar of the Year awards night next month.


Kyabram Sportstar of the Year committee has signed North Melbourne premiership footballer Darren Crocker as guest speaker for this month’s awards night.

Crocker spent 14 years as a North Melbourne player, notching 165 games throughout an injury-interrupted career.

After retiring at the end of the 1998 season, Crocker started his coaching career at Port Melbourne in the VFL. He spent one year at the Borough as an assistant before moving to Richmond.

Crocker was also an assistant coach at the Tigers and spent four seasons at Punt Rd.

He returned to the Kangaroos at the end of 2004.

Taking up a position as the midfield coach, Crocker has had the position ever since, save for the second half of 2009 where he was the caretaker senior coach following the resignation of Dean Laidley.

The popular awards night takes place at The Kyabram Club on Wednesday, May 21 from 8pm.

For tickets — $10 including supper — phone The Kyabram Club on 58522431.

Athletics dominated February nominations, with Emily Lawson and Carlie Whitford capturing six between them.
