Devonport Coaches and Preseason

Coaches Appointed for 2012
The Devonport Strikers are pleased to announce the following coaching appointments for the 2012 season:
                Premier League Coach                                 Chris McKenna
                Premier League Assistant Coach                 Darren Chilcott
                Premier League Reserves Coaches             Andrew Meldrum
                Premier League Under 18 Coach                 Mal Gorrie
                Premier League Women’s Coach                 Krystine Jeffrey
    Under 16 Boys Coach                                     David Meldrum
    Under 15 Girls Coach                                     Bradley Chilcott
    Under 14 Boys Coach                                     Kevin Smith
    Director of Junior Coaching                           Rod Andrews

Club President Andrew Groves is delighted with the appointments and also paid tribute to retiring coaches Tom McGinn and Peter Best. “We are extremely grateful for the hard work and years of service that Tom and Peter have given us, their contributions have left the club in a healthy state and made the transition for our new coaches and players an easy one.” Mr Groves said. With announcements surrounding the appointment of the Division 1 Coach imminent, the club is well placed to begin the new season on the right foot.

Newly appointed Senior Men’s Coach Chris McKenna is excited about the challenge of being a Playing Coach, and noted recently that the appointment of Assistant Senior Coach Darren Chilcott was a critical part of his plans for the new season, ‘Chilla’ has been around the game for many years & has also coached successfully at various levels. His role on game day will be vital as another set of eyes while I’m playing and it will be just as important in training during the week. The structure of training will be considerably different than it has been previously & Darren will play a key role in that.”

McKenna recently announced that Pre-season Training for the 2012 season will commence on Tuesday, the 22nd of November at 6.30pm. He noted that all Premier League players (Seniors, Reserves and Under 18’s) are welcome to attend. It is also anticipated that Under 14 and 16 Boys and Under 15 Girls Training will commence on the 6th of December 2011. Specific details of this are to be released shortly.

Northern Rangers Announce 2012 Coaching Team.

2012 Leadership Group Gabriel Tams, Todd Hingston
and Marshall Pooley.
With the 2012 season fast approaching Northern Rangers have moved to firm up their plans for the 2012 Season, appointing a coaching team to lead the group through the 2012 campaign.
Three time George Dale Winner Todd Hingston joins the clubs leadership group, working closely with Gabriel Tams and Marshall Pooley.
For the three it will be their first time in such positions, but the club is excited at what the trio will bring to the side at a leadership level with some fresh thinking  All have played under Roslan Sa’ad and Adam Whitemore, and all are keen to see the current brand of football the club has adopted, continue and improve into the future.
Training will commence on Monday the 9th of January 2012 at the NTCA from 6pm, and continue every Monday and Wednesday from there on, unless otherwise stated on the clubs website.  Friday sessions will again feature from late January at Churchill Park from 6pm to 7pm.
Additional preseason fitness work will include Monday evening runs from Monday the 21st of November, the group will be leaving from the Launceston Rugby club car park, and all intending players are encouraged to attend.
On the Women’s front, the club has appointed Jamie Fosket to lead the Women into a new era of football as he looks to take discipline to a higher level amongst the Women’s ranks.  He will be assisted by Jacquie Latham who joins the club after some time away from the game.  Jacquie has extensive experience and accolades at State level with NSW and WA and the club looks forward to what she will bring to the Women’s team.  Their training schedule will be announced soon.
Under 18s will this year be lead by Mel Cuschieri and Rod Fulton.  Both of these men have had great experience at junior level, and will focus on preparing the under 18’s for promotion through the clubs ranks.  The Under 18 training will most likely start in late January, but anyone who is keen, is encouraged to join the seniors from the 9th of January.
If you are interested in playing or getting involved with the club in 2012, please send the club an email at
