It is with great pleasure that we welcome back to the club Steve D’Andrea as our new senior men’s coach for season 2022 and beyond. After 14 continuous seasons being heavily involved at the club, which included premiership success in both the juniors and senior arms of the club, Steve accepted a senior coaching role at a neighbouring club, which has allowed him to further develop his coaching skills and relationships with many talented young players within our community.

Steve’s ability to not only develop young talent, but create a tremendous rapport with the playing group away from football is a rare gift that not many coaches have. With the tremendous work that Adrian McBean has done with the senior men’s playing group in creating such a strong culture and work ethic, we know that Steve, in his new role as senior men’s coach, will only further strengthen and develop the group in the coming years to hopefully achieve sustained success for the club in the future.

On behalf the club, we congratulate Steve on his appointment and wish him all the very best with this exciting young group.
