U17 Coaching Appointment


The Junior Committee is very excited to announce the appointment of  Frank Lesiputty who will be coaching our top U17 side

In 2019, we will be fielding 2 x U17 teams which really is fantastic and hope to announce another coach in the short term.

We would like to thank Chris & Andy, who were our coaches in 2018, who have decided to have a year off....but we are hoping to see them around the club and hopefully back coaching a team in the near future. 1st year coaches and a prelim finals appearance is a super effort.

Frank comes to us with an incredible Football CV, so we are extremely lucky.
