WAUCHOPE Blues have started preparations to improve on their impressive 2018 finish after re-signing coach Anthony Boyd for their 2019 campaign.
Boyd led the Blues to a top-two finish following the regular season before they bowed out in the semi-finals.
The coach will enter his third year as coach in the top grade and, in doing so, is hoping to get a step closer to premiership glory.
“We’ve seen that with a few smart recruits, and the local talent that is about, we have the cattle there to go all the way to the top,” Boyd said.
The Blues had arguably their best season in the past five years this year and coach Boyd can take a lot of that credit through the knowledge he’s brought to the club as well as smart recruitment.
From 2017, where the Blues finished second last, to 2018 where they finished second in the regular competition it’s been a massive turn around for the club.
Boyd has his eyes set on going to another level in 2019.
The Blues have recently held their AGM and a strong committee has been elected.
Ged Roods will enter his third year as president accompanied by Lorraine Markezic as secretary and Kirsty Markezic as treasurer.
They are joined by a strong contingent of committee members.
Having signed Boyd as the first grade coach, the Blues are also seeking applications for the lower grades coaches in reserve grade, under 18’s and league tag.
Applications can be emailed to “the secretary” at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications close at 5pm on Friday November 9.
