TSL superstar and 2018 Roy Cazaly Medallist Daniel Joseph has officially re-signed with the club until the end of 2021, all but locking in a special milestone for the mercurial left-footer in the next two seasons.

Joseph ruptured his ACL in round 2 this year, his 131st game for Glenorchy, leaving him 19 appearances short of life membership. But with his rehabilitation on schedule, 'DJ' could potentially join star teammates like Jaye Bowden, Josh Arnold, Brayden Webb, Matt Dilger and Rhys Mott in the esteemed club in 2020.

"Getting life membership at Glenorchy would be really special and it's something that's important to me," Joseph said.

"You only have to look at the list of guys who have done it to see how much of an achievement it is."

But there is more than 150 games on Joseph's mind. After being forced to watch a 2019 season that failed to reach the heights it promised early on, DJ is determined to lead from the front and help the Magpies start their second century in style.

"I think there are big things ahead," he said.

"You can see pretty much all the boys are jumping back on board and we're going to have a good team, and I love playing with this group of guys."

In more good news, DJ is optimistic he will be back in the black and white sooner rather than later as he recovers from his knee reconstruction.

"I've started running again, it's not all that fast yet, but if everything stays on track I should be right to do full running at the start of pre-season," Joseph said.

"I'm pretty hopeful I'll be ready to go at the start of the season."
