Rupertswood FNC has moved quickly and is excited to announce the return of Brad Fox to the Club in the role of Senior Coach for at least the 2024 to 2026 seasons.
Brad was previously at Rupertswood as a coach and assistant coach for 12 years starting back in 2008 with our Auskick program right through to coaching our U15A side to a Premiership in 2019. His appointment reunites him with a number of those junior premiership players that have since debuted in our Senior team over the last 2 years.
Brad’s football experience includes 21 senior AFL games with Essendon and Richmond, and also an involvement with the Brisbane Lions in their Premiership 3-peat 2001-2003 as opposition scout/analyst for senior coach Leigh Matthews.
We warmly welcome Steve Brown as the U18.5 coach for 2024. Steve’s football background has included time as a player with Hawthorn U17’s and U19’s and over 100 senior games with Salesians Old Collegians.
His coaching experience spans 3 sports including 4 years at Sunbury Lions juniors. He has an inclusive approach to footy and will build terrific connections with our players based on trust, clear communication, and making a personal investment into each player.
Our U18.5’s will be incorporated into senior training each week as part of their development within our Senior Club.
