AFL; Former St Kilda supervisor Brett Ratten will work for North Melbourne

St Kilda sacked supervisor Brett Ratten has been handed an AFL lifeline by new North Melbourne supervisor Alastair Clarkson.

Ratten, who was dropped by the Saints in a shock transfer after the season and changed with Ross Lyon, will be a part of the Kangaroos as a part-time assistant coach.

He left Clarkson once more after spending six seasons at Hawthorn, together with the membership’s profitable premiership period from 2013 to 2015, as an assistant.

“Brett involves the membership as a seasoned and educated soccer individual and we’re thrilled to welcome him to Arden St,” mentioned North Melbourne basic supervisor of soccer, Todd Viney.

“Brett is a extremely regarded operator who has contributed to the success of the premiership throughout his time at Hawthorn. His intensive teaching expertise will likely be a fantastic asset to our membership.”

Ratten’s focus will likely be on the midfield group throughout weekdays and on AFL matchdays.

Clarkson took the reins at North regardless of an ongoing investigation into historic allegations of racism throughout his time on the Hawks, a time when Ratten was on the membership.

No fees have been made in opposition to the rats.
