St Kilda have confirmed Boston Everitt, son of club great Peter, has joined the Saints' Next Generation Academy for the 2022 season.

Boston has been previously affiliated with the Saints' junior ranks, having been part of their 'Futures' squad in 2019 as an U15s prospect.

The teenager is now in line to follow in the footsteps of his father, who played 180 games and booted 300 goals during his 10-year stint in the red, white and black.

Boston would also be accessible to the Saints as a father-son prospect, however the club has looked to create early links with the potential draftee in adding his name to their NGA cohort.

Everitt is currently based in Queensland, with his father a director with Great Australian Doorstep Travel TV as well as a host on 92.5 Gold FM TripleM Gold Coast.

The Saints were able to bolster their drafting recruitment through their NGA avenues in last year's Draft window, having selected Mitchito Owens, Marcus Windhager, Jack peris and Josiah Kyle.

Next Generation Academies look towards the "attraction, retention and development" of male and female prospects from under-represented segments of the country.

St Kilda's NGA program is currently under the eye of former playing pair Nick Dal Santo and Trent Dennis-Lane.
