Uncivil war on the North Shore: Presidents shape up ahead of Norths v Gordon local derby

By Jon Geddes

NORTHERN Suburbs president Grahame O’Donnell has sparked a war of words with his Gordon counterpart Matt Glascott with his provocative claim that the Highlanders have “a sense of entitlement” ahead of Saturday’s big local derby between their clubs at North Sydney Oval

“The bottom line is we have had to come up against adversity a lot more times than they have,” O’Donnell said.

“Basically, as a club they have always thought they have had the upper hand on us.

“And when you talk about the North Shore and that sort of superiority complex, everyone seems to put that towards them and not us.

“Even though we may be based in what is considered a nice area, and while a few of our players are GPS boys, most of them come from country backgrounds or not even Sydney itself.”
