Senior Football Coach of Leongatha

by Beau Vernon

I’m really proud and excited to have been announced as the senior coach of the Leongatha Football Club.

It’s a big challenge ahead, but one which I’m really looking forward to.
I’ve always been one to study the game and have probably always know that one day I would coach. If it wasn’t for my injury I would probably be putting my hand up to coach the side now as a playing coach. And why should being in a chair change that.10632856_468300173309980_8744438931762410742_n
Leongatha has a proud club history winning at least one premiership in every decade since the 1920’s. The club has missed the finals for the last 2 seasons and I’m looking forward to playing my part in getting Leongatha back up the ladder where we belong. Two current day players to have come from Leongatha are Jarryd Roughead and Dyson Heppell.
One of my main aims is to build a strong club culture, one which gets the best out of players on and off the field, and which has a big focus on developing local junior players.

    Beau I was told about you and watched a program on the weekend that featured you. Congratulations. The same day I saw the program I was told about a invention called re walk.
    I am sure you have heard of it already but I thought you may be a great candidate for it I have included the link in this message
    All the best Ruth Zeevi
