The club formally welcomes Josh Scott who is expected to play a significant part in a successful 2014 season for the Tigers.
The 19 year old played at Gippsland Power under 18’s in the TAC Cup under Nick Stevens for the past two seasons.
Key forward Josh Scott (Gippsland Power) will join us after being unlucky not to be selected in the AFL Draft and is set to commence pre season training with the boys on Friday.
Josh comes fresh from winning the TAC Cup Morrish Medal, leading goal kicker award and a spot in the team of the year.
Come Stand with Us pre season training is on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from 5:30pm every body’s welcome!
Hello Tiger fans!
After finding my feet for the past month I thought it was timely to introduce myself and provide you with an update about how much excitement has been building on and off the training track during pre-season.
Firstly, I’m extremely honoured to be coaching such a proud, and well-supported, SANFL club. It hasn’t taken long to get a sense of the rich history at Glenelg while also focusing on improvement as we seek to rise up the premiership table in 2014.
While an obvious strength of mine as a coach is in player development and management after working with the NSW/ACT underage program and TAC Cup club Gippsland Power, I have also experienced the other end of the spectrum while assisting Brendon Lade as midfield coach at AFL club Richmond.
It hasn’t taken long but already the enthusiasm and energy of the entire senior squad has reached fever pitch. We have only been training for a month but the buzz from all of the guys on the track has become infectious as we seek to improve in all facets physically and mentally.
A new Chief Executive (Steve Moore), a new Senior Coach, a new Head of Football Development/Reserves coach (Matt Lokan) and a new Strength and Conditioning Co-ordinator (Kyle Gallard) have also provided the club with a fresh look and an outstanding drive to demand improvement.
On the recruiting front, we have been pleased to bolster our midfield experience with the signing of AFL-experienced pair Sam Lonergan (Essendon/Richmond) and Aaron Joseph (Carlton). It has also been pleasing to welcome back Bays juniors in Patrick McCarthy (Carlton) and Nathan Stark (Melbourne) as they seek to reignite their careers while forward Josh Scott (Gippsland Power) will join us after being unlucky not to be selected in the AFL Draft.
It’s been great to witness the improvement of several young players on the training track, with Hayden Jolly, Ethan Gill, Scott Spriggs, Billy Stretch, Alex Neal-Bullen and Josh Miller already catching the eye with their work ethic.
Experienced pair Ruory Kirkby and Andrew Hooper are looking great after battling knee injuries last year while Ty Allen has taken charge of the rehab group with our sports scientist Andrew Modra after undergoing off-season knee surgery.
In another major positive, exciting forward Lewis Hender, who underwent a knee reconstruction last year, has started running and changing direction as he tracks toward a return in Round 1.
As such excitement has built already in December; we look forward to maintaining the momentum throughout summer and into the New Year.
And with more recruits on the way, make sure you Stand With Us and sign up as a Glenelg member before Christmas!
PLUS go into the draw to win the match ball from our first home game and enjoy an ultimate match day experience, including, two tickets to our home match luncheon on the day.
Renewing or signing up for the first time is now far easier via our new online membership brochure site: membership.glenelgfc.com.au
Alternatively you can call the club’s reception on 08 8294 5333 for further information if required.
On behalf of our players, coaches and officials we invite you to be part of the Glenelg family by joining as a member in 2014.
We appreciate all your support and ask for your help to spread the word to other supporters and encourage them to also STAND WITH US in 2014!
All the best,
