Junior Football Coaching Announcement

St Joseph’s FNC is pleased to announce the following junior coaching appointments for our 2017 season:

Colts As – Matt McCartin
Under 16As – Michael King
Under 14As – Damian Soraghan
Matt and Michael return to their current coaching roles following very successful 2016 seasons, with their teams finishing runners-up and premiers respectively.
Damian takes on the Under 14As coaching role following an excellent season as our U14Ds coach and brings a wealth of football experience from a highly successful playing career in the Footscray District Football League.
In addition, we are also pleased to announce the creation of the new role of Junior Coaching Coordinator, the purpose of which is to provide support to our junior coaches and ensure we apply a consistent coaching approach across our junior and senior teams. Shane Jack, current assistant to our senior coach Heath Jamieson, has agreed to take on this role in addition to his senior duties in 2017.
Based on 2016 registrations, St Joseph’s is planning at this stage on fielding 2 Colts, 3 Under 16s and 3 Under 14s teams in 2017. In the coming months, we will be seeking an indication from our 2016 junior players as to their likelihood of playing with St Joeys again in 2017 to help with our season planning.
Further announcements on coaching appointments for our other junior teams will be announced in due course.
Please email the club on stjoeysjuniorfooty@gmail.com if you require any further information at this time.
