The Glenelg Football Club is pleased to announce that it has extended Senior Coach Matthew Lokan’s contract until the end of the 2016 season.
The Board believed that the improvement the playing group have been showing both on and off field, and the direction the whole Football Department is heading, was a reflection on both Matt’s ability as a coach and his tremendous work ethic.
The Board has observed Matthew’s ability to work with a young playing group, and are very pleased with their competitive nature this season and believe as a Club we are on the right path. Matthew has a record of putting the necessary steps in place to achieve rapid improvement, evidenced by his time with Belconnen in the NEAFL in the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
This decision will provide the Football Club the stability it needs as we continue to strive to improve over the rest of the 2015 season, and provide a base for our future planning.

We have added four players to the squad to play Norwood at Gliderol Stadium on Sunday. McGinty, McNeil and Rioli have been added to the squad after some encouraging performances in the reserves.
Sam Lonergan has recovered from a groin injury and has been recalled. Curran (hamstring) and Pitt (knee) could not be considered due to injury. It is disappointing for both players as they have been playing well over the past few weeks. Curran is particularly unlucky after missing most of season 2014 and working hard to regain his spot in the league side this year.
We hope to see you all at Gliderol on Sunday to support us and also our Charity Match Partner, White Ribbon
