In big news for Southern Power AFC, the club is delighted to announce the appointment of Cameron Gregory and Paul Donnelly as co-coaches of the Under 19 team in 2017.
These great appointments come on the back of the club nominating a team for the Under 19 Division One competition next season.
Cameron joins the Power after a successful 2016 season coaching the Miranda Bombers Under 17 side to finals while Paul also joins the Power from the Miranda Bombers having coached at the club for many years, most recently the Under 17’s team in 2015.
Both Cameron and Paul have extensive coaching experience and bring an inclusive approach to coaching along with a passion for the game which is ideal for the young group. This combined with their unique ability to mentor young men to achieve their best should ensure a fantastic year ahead for the team.
“Its always great to win matches, but as a coach I get the most satisfaction when a player persists with the sport because of the enjoyment and fulfilment they get from playing and training,” Cameron said.
“Our aim is to provide a quality, inclusive and competitive environment which is important for the club in its quest to attract quality local junior footballers.”
Both coaches are optimistic about what the year ahead holds and cant wait to get into things early in the New Year.
