GRAND FINAL

 


 

 

The Balwyn Football Club has great pleasure in announcing Marty Pask as the Senior Coach for season 2017.

 
Following a lengthy process of interviews by the coaching sub committee, there was unanimous support for Marty and we are excited to have him join our club  for the upcoming season.
 
Marty has played at the highest level with Brisbane Lions & then joined the Western Bulldogs, playing with their affiliate VFL club  Werribee Tigers. His career also had him playing stints at University Blacks and Keilor FC.
 
He currently operates a sports management business, including AFL player management and media.
 
Marty has coached at the B Grade Amateur Club AJAX for the past three seasons.
 
'I'm excited by the challenge of stepping up to Eastern Football League Division 1 and to further myself in my coaching career. I have a real passion to see players improve and my challenge is to work with the current group, give the seconds players every opportunity to play senior football and  continue to introduce new players into the club" Pask said.
 
All of us at Balwyn wish him and the team continued success in season 2017. 
 
 
Richard Wilson
President
 

 A fabulous night was had by all of the 130 strong crowd at the Balwyn FC Social Club on Saturday night for our B & F Presentation Night, winding up our 2016 season, and saluting our retiring champions Rod Crowe, John Milhuisen and Ben Wise. 

It also bought the curtain down on the five year coaching tenure of Daniel Donati at Balwyn FC, who we farewell with every good wish for the future with his family and business endeavours. 

For the record, with Daniel Donati at the helm - here's some statistics ... 

We won 4 Premierships in 5 years (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016)
We played in 5 straight Grand Finals - twice back to back champions
We played in 17 finals over that period
14 times we played in a 'win or the season is over' final.
We won 13/14 of them
We were beaten twice in a row only once in five seasons

What a time to be with Balwyn FC!

But as always with life, the future beckons ... and we will be doing all we can to ensure that these kind of results continue.

Stick with us.

Go Tiges!

A new Senior coach will be selected and announced soon, as Daniel Donati finishes his very successful 5 year tenure to spend more time on his business and with his family.

Reserves Coach Adam Lenarcic will continue, after successfully coaching the Twos to a premiership in his first year 2015 and working hard with a very young group in 2016, who will all benefit from another year of experience.

A new U19 Coach will also be selected and announced shortly.
