Mark's contribution as President was invaluable and during his time he saw the development of our Junior Players paving the way for them to play Premier League.  Mark was also instrumental in Nightcliff Football Club being the first club to introduce a Domestic Violence Policy in conjunction with Catholic Care NT.  Although Mark has stepped aside, he has continued on our Committee and along with his wife Alison who is the Head Sports Trainer, will be there supporting their beloved Tigers every week.
