Willunga Football Club Announces “A’ Grade Coach
Willunga Football Club President, Neil Lang, announced today that the Club has selected Anthony Murgatroyd as the Clubs Senior Coach for Season 2015
“After Barry Pilmore’s resignation it has been a tough job to decide the best coach for the club given the quality of applicants we had, but we have managed to secure Murgatroyd, who has great credentials and we feel that he has a great fit with our culture”, said Lang.
Murgatroyd has a great record as a player and a coach. Starting Senior Football in Broken Hill in 1988 he had a short stint playing in the SANFL before returning to the country to build an impressive record.
He has a record 6 Broken Hill Mail Medals, 3 Middleton Medals for league Best and Fairest in Broken Hill, is an eight times “A” grade premiership player and is in both South Broken Hill Football Club and Broken Hill League teams of the century.
He already has an impressive coaching record which began in Broken Hill and developed most recently in the Great Southern Football League where he coached Langhorne Creek to consecutive flags.
He has coached West, South and Central Broken Hill before moving to Langhorne Creek and last year took on the role of midfield /assistant coach at Woodville West Torrens in the SANFL for both League & Reserves teams.
Murgatroyd has coached teams to 4 Premierships, 3 Runners Up and 1 third in 8 years as a coach.
He has had representative team coaching roles at Murray Mallee Barrier, Broken Hill Football League, and Great Southern Football Leagues and was Assistant coach of the Southern Zone team in the SA country championships in 2013.
Lang pointed out that Murgatroyd is a natural and has great mentoring skills and is passionate about his football and he will be assisted by Gary Summerton who will stay on at Willunga as Chairman of Selectors.
“The other coaching positions in the club will now be selected with Murgatroyd’s input”, Lang said.
