Boost for BITS for 2020 as club re-signs players
AUSSIE RULES: Just hours after announcing the new A-grade coach Rick Bean, reigning BITS Saints best and fairest winner Trent Millar has re-signed with the club for 2020.
The club will get the services of gun utility Milton Miskin.
Club president Andrew McMahon said the pacy Millar had matured as a player.
"Trent has been a long-time junior of the club and has come up all the way through the ranks to senior footy," he said.
"In 2019, Trent showed commitment and leadership far beyond his years."
Millar's versatility has been impressive and has the ability to play in defence and midfield.
"Trent played all over the ground to cover the holes and is really looking forward to playing under the new coach," McMahon said.
Miskin, who played a few games at the Saints last year before a season-ending finger injury, grew up and played for Claremont in Western Australia, playing senior football in Cairns with the Hawks.
He also represented Cairns and the North Quensland senior teams in recent years.
Miskin returned to Cairns after his injury and now has a young family with the birth of his daughter Salaineah to his partner Dakkiesha.
BITS have also secured the services of 2019 most improved defender Ky Hull and hard-at-it forward-cum-midfielder Jamie Cunninghame.
