In another great development for The Devils, former AFL player Andrew Manning ( 56 games & 43 goals, St.Kilda & Essendon, including 4 Finals games) has joined the coaching team as Senior assistant coach.
After finishing at AFL level, Andrew was playing Coach at Melton but serious injuries cut his playing days short. Andrew has worked in professional management roles for many years with IBM & brings great people & leadership skills to the club.
Whilst he will have responsibility for the midfield on game days, Andrew’s experiences as a player & leader will be invaluable in coaching & developing our players skills to a higher level during the week.
Andrew has been following the Devils for a few years as a keen supporter, and has watched the players & opposition closely which will be valuable in his role. The club & Senior Coach Jess Sinclair, are very happy to have a passionate footy person in Andrew step forward and share his knowledge & experience in a meaningful way for our players.
Steve Draper – President
More great news for the Devils, outstanding & experienced footballer Ben Carboni has joined for season 2018. After 3 seasons as playing senior coach of Waverley, Ben’s solid leadership experience will also be a boost for the Devils.
Ben was Vice Captain & a senior premiership player with Caulfield Grammarians in the VAFA where he also won the club B&F and played rep footy for the league. Ben has also won B&F’s at Waverley and Gippsland club Thorpdale. Ben was Captain of EFL Div 2 team in 2014 & 2015. He has the scores on the board, and delivers on the ground consistently.
A midfielder who runs all day, Ben is keen to start training with the Senior squad under Senior Coach Jess Sinclair next week. We are really pleased to have a player of Ben’s quality on and off the field at the Devils for 2018.
