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.
