BOISDALE-Briagolong Football-Netball Club has announced a slight reshuffling to their coaching ranks, with Sam Bedggood stepping up to the role of senior coach and Darren Renooy staying on as an assistant.
The Bombers had a strong year in 2021, finishing equal first at the end of the season.
The slight reshuffle will not change the dynamic of the coaching group too much according to new coach Bedggood.
“I am excited … not a lot is going to change, Darren was the older experienced guy overseeing it and I was running a lot of training and game plan,” he said.
Bedggood said the only real shift that players will see will be the new coach taking more quarter time and half time addresses to the players.
His appointment is clearly with an eye to the future, with the young coach excited for the direction the club is heading in.
“We thought we were in a pretty good position this season, we started playing some really good footy through that middle section,” he said.
“We haven’t really lost too many, a couple of the older boys might hang up the boots but we won’t lose too many, if anything we are looking to gain a few (players).”
The East Gippsland Football Netball League cancelled its season prior to finals.
