Season 2020 has been unlike any other in my time of coaching!
Due to the covid pandemic our optimistic approach to the season in Feb/early March was cut short by an almost 3 month hiatus that i felt disrupted our preparation.
With the news there would be no promotion or relegation (and a shortened 16 Round season), i decided to use the season to try different personnel, formations and tactics (some worked others didnt) which i hope will give us a good springboard for next season.
In spite of all this, the playing group has been terrific this season. League and Reserves finishing in the top half of respective leagues and Metros after a disastrous start propellelled up the ladder towards the end!
The club showed that we can match it in Div 3 and with an increase of effort and focus in all areas i believe we can give a better account of ourselves next season. I'd like to thank Chris Daley, Scott Ewing , Yuma Iwasaki , Rob and Gordana Caruso for their great efforts and support this season.
