The Gold Coast SUNS can reveal the 2024 guernsey number changes as club partner Knotwood signs a two-year contract extension with the SUNS.
Knotwood will have the backs of our new recruits, remaining on the top-back of the SUNS playing guernsey until the end of 2026.
Of the four SUNS Academy draftees, Jed Walter will wear #17 in his debut season, Ethan Read will take #20, Will Graham will wear #26 and Jake Rogers has selected #29.
Graham has a personal connection to his number, having worn 26 when representing the Allies and SUNS Academy in his junior years.
Players selected from the Rookie Draft, Sam Clohesy will take #33, Will Rowlands has picked #36 and Jack Mahony will wear #42.
There have been no other guernsey changes from the 2023 season.
Knotwood have been on board with the club since 2022 as the official Low Maintenance Building Product of the Gold Coast SUNS.
Gold Coast SUNS General Manager – Commercial, Andrew Thomas, says the club is thrilled to extend its relationship with Knotwood for an additional two years.
“Knotwood were our first ever partner to be featured on the top-back of our guernsey and it has been a pleasure working with Leo, Michael, Darren and Brendan,” Thomas said.
“Knotwood are leaders in their field when it comes to sustainability and we love to work with like-minded organisations such as Knotwood who are based in our community on the Gold Coast.”
Leo Santini, Knotwood CEO says, "Knotwood is so excited to be sponsoring the Gold Coast SUNS for another two years. We are proud to support a team that shares our home turf. Game on."
Knotwood designs and produces stunning aluminium systems that look like real wood.
Made on the Gold Coast, the combination of local production with sustainable manufacturing methods creates a high-quality product that is low maintenance, longer lasting and easier to use than real wood.
Knotwood’s modular systems are versatile and can be used for facades, cladding, pergolas, fencing, gates, screens, garage doors - the possibilities are endless.
