Posted on January 29, 2016 in 'News'

The new junior season is fast approaching and the club have announced the Coaching line up for the Academy and NPL sides for 2016.

NPL Technical Director Andy Petterson is delighted with the new line up and feels the coaches selected will give the youngsters at the club the best opportunity to progress this season. “We have always been fortunate to have some of Australia’s best junior coaches here at ECU and with the new additions, which includes a couple of the senior sides’ new international signings, we now have a great mix of talented, young and experienced coaches for the 2016 season” he said.

“Former Hearts striker Gordon Smith will take on the role as Under 11 Miniroos coach, while former Swansea City defender Joseph Jones will take the under 10 Miniroos, and both are looking forward to helping the young players at the club.”

“Both these lads have been involved with professional clubs in the UK from a young age and this experience will be invaluable in guiding the next generation of ECU youngsters towards what we hope will be bright playing careers” added Petterson.
