Wantirna South FC has appointed the experienced Steve Cochrane as Senior Coach of the Devils for season 2019. Steve who successfully coached the EFL representative team in 2018, was last in charge of league powerhouse Vermont from 2014-2016 and before that Blackburn from 2009-2011.
Steve who grew up in the Wantirna South area, had a very impressive reputation as a 3 time premiership player at Vermont & another with Blackburn. Since then he has become an outstanding coach leading teams to compete in multiple finals campaigns in the EFL’s Premier Division.
The Devils, who will compete in the restructured EFL Div 1 in 2019, wanted an experienced coach to lead the players to perform at their peak and feels very confident Steve Cochrane is the best person to do this.
Sam Bates who impressed as Devils Development Coach in 2018 will be Senior Assistant coach to Steve. Further coaching appointments & player signings will be announced in the coming weeks.
The players will meet Steve at the clubrooms 6pm Wednesday 17th October where he will outline plans for pre season & beyond.
The club is genuinely excited to gain a high quality leader and coach in Steve, and we welcome him and his wife Bec and children Willow & Zane to the Devils.

After 219 games, Andy Teakel has finished playing for the Devils. At the recent presentation night the Club thanked and wished him well and presented him with a picture frame of his highlights. Having recently moved to Seaford, he felt it was time to play footy in his new local community.
A 2 time senior premiership player (2008, 2014), Andy was Senior captain from 2012 to 2015, Senior Best & Fairest in 2011 and named in the EFL team of the year 4 times including as Captain in 2014.
We will miss Andy on & off the field as his contribution and leadership has been significant for many years and he is sure to do well in whatever he does. We will always consider Andy Teakel a champion of the Devils and he is always welcome at our club.
