Senior Coach to change for 2019

Wantirna South Football club will have a new Senior coach for 2019.
 
It was intended that 2018 Senior coach Jess Sinclair would continue, however due to his intention to relocate to Queensland, both the club and Jess decided it was in the players interest to seek out a new mentor to take over the role.
 
The club is disappointed to lose Jess as his football nous is outstanding and he led the team to be very competitive this season.
 
Many players got an opportunity to play Senior football (42) under Jess this year too and he has created a solid foundation for an improvement of results in 2019.
 
Jess leaves with our friendship and best wishes for him and his family. He will be attending the presentation night later this month, where we can all thank him for his contribution to the Devils.
