Philosophy on Coaching for 2013


  • I will be providing our boys with an introduction to stepping up to senior football.
  • They will have a clear view on expectations the club requires from them to be a part of the under 16 group. We will be endeavoring to coach the boys to play a modern style of football and to accept and thrive on the responsibilities that will be given to them in regard to effort and participation.


I see my role as getting the boys prepared for senior football at Morningside. In saying that, I am well aware that some boys will not be looking for this as their goal.  Fortunately, we will be in the position of being able to cater for all players, as we will have 2 teams entered for 2013.


My focus will be on improving ALL players within our squad, whether it is developing skill, game sense, work ethic and general life skills.


As always, assistance is always welcomed so please come forward and make you known to the coaching group, it would very much appreciated.
