Former Gold Coast and Carlton tall Daniel Gorringe has signed with Nothern Football and Netball League side Greensborough for the 2022 season.

The 29-year-old joins the local powerhouse club as the latest ex-AFL player to venture to the NFNL, joining fellow former Blue Tom Bell - who the club also announced has signed for next year - at Greensborough.

Gorringe will bring 26 games of AFL experience to the Boro, having first joined Gold Coast as the No.10 overall selection ahead of the Suns' inaugural season in the AFL.

The ruck/forward utility moved to Princes Park at the end of the 2015 season, playing four matches for the Blues across two seasons at the club.

"We’re proud to announce former Gold Coast & Carlton big man Daniel Gorringe has joined the Greensborough Football Club," the club wrote in a social media post.

"Let’s give a big Boro family welcome to Dan, we can’t wait to see you in action."

Greensborough have also previously called home to former Carlton midfielder David Ellard, while Bell took home the Frank Rosbrook Medal (Divison 1 best and fairest) in 2019.

The NFNL will join fellow local leagues in planning for an uninterrupted 2022 campaign following cancelled seasons across the past two years.


Gorringe joins the likes of David Zaharakis (Bundoora), Lin Jong (Montmorency), Jarrad Waite and Corey Wagner (both Whittlesea) in heading to the NFNL for 2022.
