Senior Coach Dinner Dance Address

IMG 5747Outgoing Senior Coach (pictured here with his wife Rachel) spoke to the group at our Annual Dinner Dance. See his speech below. 

"Just over 7 years ago I was preparing to umpire a grand final at the Northern Football League when I received a phone call from the then General Manager of the Riddell Umpires Glen Shilling. He said he was looking for a new Coach and after 13 seasons of umpiring, I was interested in seeing the coaching side of our great sport. After meeting with Glen and the committee I was appointed as the Senior Coach in 2010.
