Cimera quits as Knights President

MELBOURNE Knights went down 1-0 to UTS Olympic in Sydney last night to cap off a disastrous day in which Angie Cimera resigned as president of the club.
Adam Ciantar scored Olympic’s winner 14 minutes into the second half to leave the Knights stranded in 12th spot as the lowest-placed Victorian club.
Cimera, who led the club to two Ericsson Cup titles, walked out at the end of a general meeting yesterday which was to define the Melbourne Knights soccer club as a separate entity from theMelbourne Croatia social club.
“I am not able to work with the present executive. I have taken a hell of a lot but there were certain people on the board who weren’t backing me and there was no point continuing,” Cimera said.
“My family life, my business and my social life have all suffered while I’ve put the club first and in the end I had to weigh up my options.
“I didn’t want to give up while we had the problems with David Hill and the (good behavior) bond, but I had no choice.”
The meeting was attended by around 90 members and many refused to accept his resignation and started an immediate petition to call an extraordinary general meeting of all members.
