Player Profiled for the month of February is John (Eddie) Conte.
Although John Conte suffers the unfortunate disease Collingwooditus, he isn't a bad bloke. A known small time criminal who is always trying to make a deal on his mobile phone. A backroom gambler and suspected underworld figure he has fitted into the club extremely well. Having seen the opportunity to get his hands on the clubs money John joined the COMMITTEE for the first time this season (2000/2001). John has had some great highlights since his arrival at Wyndham, but none are better than the two miraculous catches that he has held onto this year, both against St Johns. A favorite with fellow clubmates not for his wit and good humour, but mainly because of the food that he brings to afternoon tea......Lasagna, Pizza, Sandwiches........
