Clint Zammit, the Newcastle Knights recruitment manager has parted ways with the club after joining them in mid-2020.

According to the Newcastle Herald, it is understood that Zammit finished up the role on Tuesday with the two parties mutually going their own ways.

Having signed from the Cowboys in mid-2020, Zammit remained in Cairns throughout his entire tenure with the Newcastle based-team.

Known for his time at the North Queensland Cowboys, Zammit discovered Jason Taumalolo when he was only 14 years old.

He also was set to work with Alex McKinnon at the club when he was first signed, who also left the club in an ambassador role.

"Alex is doing an amazing job and with his expertise of the local area and Clint's years of knowledge, we will have a strong footprint across the country," Knights coach Adam O'Brien said when he first signed Zammit and McKinnon in 2020 via the Newcastle Herald.
