Stephen Kernahan Biography

Monday, 20 October 2014
Stephen Silvagni has refused to be drawn on media reports he is set to quit his position as list manager at Greater Western Sydney after being linked to a move back to Carlton.

Former Blues president Stephen Kernahan admitted in March he would like his premiership teammate to rejoin the club.

"I am currently contracted to the Giants. After a successful trade period, the club is now focused on next month's NAB AFL Draft and contract extensions for a number of our players," Silvagni said.

"We hold a strong position at the draft and look forward to continuing to build on the gains made last week with the recruitment of Ryan Griffen and Joel Patfull."

Outgoing Carlton president Stephen Kernahan laments giving up Josh Kennedy in the trade that landed the Blues Chris Judd.

"I would never knock back what Chris Judd's given our football club," Kernahan said.

"That (deal) went to about the last 30 seconds of the trade period.

"We had picks one, three and 20. We had three and 20 on the table, Richmond had two and 12 on the table.

"Judd was either going to stay [at West Coast] he didn't want to go to Richmond so we had to make a call and the only bloke they were interested in the whole time was Kennedy.

"We offered to put up the whole team, just about. And Josh Kennedy, you can't let centre-half-forwards go."

Thursday, 20 September 2012
Stephen Kernahan announces that his reign as Carlton president will come to an end after the 2013 season.

"I believe it is in the best interests of the club to set a date now as it gives everyone time to plan for the future," Kernahan said.

"I am certainly appreciative of the board in supporting this decision and giving me their full support for another 13 months."

Carlton sacks Brett Ratten, as president Stephen Kernahan explains the anguish surrounding the club's 'harsh' decision.

"The club has been ruthless in its quest for success and that's one of its great strengths as a footy club," Kernahan said.

"At the end of the day we didn't play finals and that was our objective."

Ratten says he will coach out the year in the Blues' final game against St Kilda.

"Why hide? Why run away? If you want to be a leader of any organisation, you have to make sometimes hard decisions," Ratten said.

"I started the year, I want to finish the year ... that is my role and I am not hiding from one thing."

Richard Pratt has issued an instruction from his deathbed: Kernahan must continue to serve as Carlton president.

"I have a sense of duty to the club and to the Pratt family, and I love the Carlton Football Club as Dick has loved it," Kernahan said.

"I'm not saying I see it as a right or anything like that, and when it's time for me to move on I will. There are a lot of good people who could do the job, but I would be proud to continue his legacy. I suppose that legacy is one of hope and unity and self belief. I want to carry on what he started."
