The positive news out of Bairnsdale City Oval keeps on coming.
The Redlegs have locked away all four current football coaches for the 2020 Gippsland League season.
Bairnsdale president, Murray Frew, says it’s a positive sign for the club to secure its coaches for next season.
“We had a committee meeting Wednesday, July 31 and the football department has been talking to the coaches and they are happy with how they’re going and they’re keen to do it again next year,” he said.
Darren Martin is currently in his second season coaching the senior side and in that two years he has made a positive impact on the club.
“Darren is so good with people and is very approachable,” he said.
“The players are right behind him and he has been really good to the club and has made a hell of a difference in retaining players.”
Paul Anderson is at the helm of the reserves, and like Martin, has been a key cog of the team’s success.
“Both Darren and Paul love their footy and the players are happy to learn off them,” he said.
Paul Capes is in his first season of coaching the under 18 Redlegs and looks set for a finals appearance.
“I think Capesy has really grown as a coach in the past year,” he said.
“At the start of the year he was going a bit hard at the boys, but he has settled right in with them.
“He has been good and has got a really good side and the club is very happy with him.
“Big Shot (Darren Vickery) in the under 16s has been awesome and all the coaches have got some good personnel behind them.
“Everything has been floating along pretty good this year.”
