32 SPORT Tuesday March 29 2022 NTNE01Z01MA - V2 pint to size up TALENT Greenants have work to do as they wait on Premier League bid PINT Football Clubs application to join the Mens Premier League competition next season wont be decided for at least a month, AFLNT says. Greenants president Spencer Harvey declared his club was ready and waiting for promotion from Division One at its presentation night on Saturday at Mindil Beach Casino Resort. However, Harvey said the 40-year-old Greenants still had a bit of work to do before becoming the NTFLs ninth Premier League club. But thats our aim, to have a Premier League team for next season (2022-23), Harvey said. Weve got a bit of work to do with the AFLNT before it all kicks off, but hopefully we can make an announcement at the end of April once were given the seal of approval by the league. Harvey said the jump to Premier League had been building for a while with the constant dialogue between his club and the league hopefully pointing to a positive April decision. We introduced a womens side seven years ago and juniors four years ago, both of which went well so we thought the time was right to see if we could complement our Womens Premier League team with a mens side, he said. Our talks with the league have been very constructive, theyve been through the whole journey with us and have been very supportive. Now its a matter of ticking off a couple more issues and we should be ready for an announcement. Harvey also said PINTs green and gold colours would not clash with St Marys green and gold jumper if a move to the Premier League became a reality. Weve played against each other for the last 12 years in the NTFL and our women have done it, so theres plenty of room for two green and gold teams in Darwin footy, he said.
