2020 Saturday Junior Coaching appointments
Reynella would like to thank all applicants that applied and took time to be interviewed over the last few weeks. The quality of people applying for Coaching roles was extremely high this year and I can honestly say that the final decision for the Interview panel and the Executive Committee was not easy and was discussed at length. We are so lucky to have so many quality people willing to take up their time to ensure our kids are looked after.
It is with great pleasure that I can now announce the Saturday Junior Coaches for 2020.
Please make all 3 coaches welcome and get behind them and support them in their work with our kids in 2020.
Under 17.5 – Simon Karran Congratulations to Simon who returns for a 2nd year as the head coach of our U17.5 team, we saw Simon grow and learn in his first year coaching the U17.5 boys and we believe that he will continue to grow and develop again this year. Simon will continue to play Senior football at the club and is keen with Craig Austin to develop the U17.5s and get them ready for Senior football.
