He has been able to put together a fantastic team of coaches this year and the zone is off to a great start with everything running very smoothly"
"As our HZC, Vaughan will be well placed to watch Victoria's talented youth over the VCL season and that has to be a great outcome for any ambitious young player. He certainly will have his notebook with him at all times."
