Player Profile: Joel Hardwick

How long have you been playing for Northern Tigers?

I’m in first grade for my third year now. In my youth I was here from U13’s until second year of U/18’s.

Which clubs have you previously played for?

I have also played for Blacktown City, Central coast (many different names over the years), Lake Macquarie FC, and Weston FC for first grade. In my youth I also played for APIA Leichardt Tigers.

What have you enjoyed most about playing for Northern Tigers?

The team culture is excellent, the coaching is always a high standard, and the youth development has improved incredibly since I first started in U13’s.

What position do you play? Have you always played there?

I mainly play central midfield (number 6), but previously have played every possible position except goalkeeper. In my youth I was a central midfielder, winger, or right or left back.

What is your personal goal for this season?

To be as consistent as possible so the team can win the the double.

Do you have a favourite club/player? Who/why?

I go for Newcastle United in the EPL. Why, because I was just drawn to them when I was younger and they were not a popular team like Manchester United or Liverpool. My favourite player was not always the best (like Messi) and was not a big trophy winner. He was my favourite because of his impact on the team, Steven Gerrard. No one can beat his tenacity. I would like to also add Jamie Craig as one of my favourites because he is just so confident in himself!

What is your best football memory?

Well my best memory was winning U18’s at Northern Tigers. It was the second grand final win I had been involved with at the club and it was with a great coach and great team.
