Clever Southport forward Terry Knight, a matchwinner in full flight, has moved to Victoria after a career dogged by injury at the Sharks.
The turning 27-year-old played some champagne football but was cut down by serious knee injuries.
He managed just six games for 17 goals in 2006 but got up to be in the mix for the grand final side against Zillmere.
Knight did not play a senior game in 2009 and returned midway through 2010 with some strong showings.
The popular Knight’s last game was the reserves grand final last season, where he kicked three goals and was one of his side’s best in their comfortable win over Morningside.
He has joined Taylor Lakes in the Essendon League.
Another solid citizen for Southport, Dan McEntee, is pulling on the boots in Cairns this season.
The outstanding 28-year-old utility has not played for the Sharks since 2008, but was happily cleared to Cairns Saints.
Highly-rated recruit Justin Van Unen who struggled to adjust to the speed of QAFL football, has returned to Melbourne and signed with Doncaster East after just one winter at Fankhauser Reserve.
The Sharks have added to their depth by recruiting Leongatha forward utility Hayden Browne and goalkicking rover Marc Truscio.
