YFC officially announce we have signed Dylan Wright as Senior Assistant Coach for 2015. Dylan is a quality midfielder similar in size to Tyson McNeill. He has previous coaching experience and is committed to developing his leadership & coaching skills. Dylan has been a successful footballer in the Essendon FL, finishing 3rd in their league B&F before playing for East Point and Ballan in Ballarat. He also tried out for the North Ballarat Rooster, narrowly missing a spot on their VFL roster. Dylan will relocate in the new year. We’re also rapt to have signed quality midfielders Ben Keep, a dual B&F winner from Townsville, Shaun Fitzpatrick, Walla’s B&F winner and Liam Hickey, a young emerging ruck/key forward from Raiders.
Our coaching panel will be:
Greg Newbold – non playing co-coach
Trent Castles – playing coach
Dylan Wright – senior assistant
And our line coaches are:
Liam Clayton – backline
John Paola – midfield
Jeremy Grove – forward
There has been terrific interest in 2015 with many new players looking to join us and a couple more recruits close to signing. With losses limited, we expect to have a well-balanced, flexible and competitive squad.
Pre Xmas training will commence on Wednesday November 19 at Yack and then each Monday-Wednesday from then on. Please bring a football each to training for skill & touch development.
A pre-season calendar will be posted asap.
