Coaching update from the Devils…After a positive response to the advertised Development position, we are pleased to announce Andrew Azzopardi (Azza) as our Development Coach for season 2019. He replaces Sam Bates who has stepped into the Senior Assistant role for the coming season.
Andrew’s enthusiasm and knowledge of football is perfect to lead & develop our younger players into regular Senior Team players. “I am genuinely excited to help all Devils players become the footballers they want to be, and are really looking forward to working with and learning from Devils Senior Coach Steve Cochrane”
After his playing days at Glen Waverley and later with the Devils, “Azza” impressed as a Senior Assistant Coach to the experienced Matt Clark in the 2016 season. Since then he has been in New Zealand with Aussie rules club the Hornets. His resume also includes 3 seasons as a junior coach (U14’s,15’s).
“It is great to be back at the Devils, and to have the opportunity to coach all our talented younger players, I can’t wait to see what we can achieve”.
Pre Season training starts Wednesday November 14th from 6pm at Wantirna High School.
The club thanks everyone who applied for the position.
Steve Draper – President
