A man with extensive VAFA and VFL playing and coaching experience, Luke Mahoney, has been appointed to Fitzroy’s senior coaching position for 2018.
Luke joins Fitzroy directly from the senior coaching role with Brunswick NOBSPC and was recently in Ireland as the Assistant Coach on the 2017 VAFA Ireland representative tour.
Speaking from Ireland after accepting the role, Luke said “I’m really excited to be offered the senior coaching position at Fitzroy. Having watched from afar, I have always had an enormous amount of respect for the club and its community aspect and history”.
“The main attraction to the club was the continued growth at both the men’s and women’s participation levels in the VAFA along with the huge numbers at the junior club.
“The club has a great opportunity to bounce back and be the best we can be in 2018. I look forward to that challenge and meeting everyone on my return in late October.”
Fitzroy President Joan Eddy welcomed Luke’s appointment saying his strong understanding of the ethos of amateur football and his collaborative approach to bringing the whole club together were strengths that would benefit Fitzroy.
