Under 19 Coaching Panel

In what we believe is a fantastic endorsement of what we are building at the club, we are very excited to announce our Under 19’s coaching panel for 2023, to be headed up by Andy Mathers.

Andy Mathers Jack Birthisel Sam Ward Paul Henderson

As those that have been involved with football in the local area will attest, you would be hard pressed to find someone more professional in the way they go about their football than Andy, and this combined with his ability to drive standards whilst getting buy in from those around him, makes this a fantastic appointment for the ongoing development of our 19’s players.

Apart from being a well credentialed player in his own right, Jack Birthisel has worked alongside experienced senior coaches as an Assistant coach, including the premiership winning Under 19 side at Karingal in 2018 as well as having coached in his own right at Under 17’s level. Jack is passionate about developing young men and his appointment to the Under 19 coaching panel is an absolute winner for our Development program.

Sam Ward and Paul Henderson have been appointed to assist with targeted player development covering individual skills, positioning, line set ups and game sense, to ensure a consistent and aligned approach to player development within the squad that will prepare our young men for senior football.

With our Under 19’s being the foundation of our future, their development is imperative to our continued success as a club and these appointments underpin the pathway the club is building.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our current Under 19 coach, Brendan Shannon for his service and dedication to establishing Under 19’s at the club. Brendan flagged his intention to stand down at the end of the season due to increasing work commitments with the club some time ago, providing us with the opportunity to get a head start on new appointments.

We look forward to an exciting 2023 for our 19's squad.
