It was recently announced at the club’s Annual General Meeting that our games record holder, Brent Ward, is our new Senior coach. Wardy was a 1999 Best & Fairest winner and went on to captain the club in 2000. His playing career at the Rockers spanned well over a decade and he is a part of a very small group of 200+ gamers. He also had the honour of being named in our ‘Team of Don Mac”, the best Black Rock side from 1977-2015.
Brent has been a keen observer in recent years, with his nephew Daniel (2015 Premiership Backman) and niece Jasmine (Netball MVP) now into their 5th seasons at the club.
Brent has enticed another previous player Dean Gleeson to head up our fitness and strengthening department. Dean is a qualified PT at Church Street Health & Fitness Club. We welcome Dean and the expertise he will bring to our playing group.
The appointment of Wardycompliments the focus of our new committee to reconnect with our past by engaging with previous players, supporters and sponsors. Part of this focus is to build a club environment inside the rooms from past glories and achievements so they can be recognised and respected.
