BACK TO BACK COATES HIRE COACH OF THE YEAR TITLES FOR TIGER DUO

Posted on - Latest News

As if the cabinet was not already packed to capacity down at Tigerland, the club has dominated the Coach of the Year Awards for the second year running after Luke Beveridge and Owen Lalor being announced as winners once again.
The award caps an amazing stint at the helm of the Tigers for Beveridge, who heads to the Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup to further his coaching ambitions. Luke has coached the side for three years, winning the C, B and A Section title in that time and in doing so the Tigers became the first clib in the history of the VAFA to do so.
Owen Lalor, who has also coached three consecutive U19 premierships (Sections 3, 2 and Premier) will step up to the senior role in 2009. Owen was yesterday announced as a finalist in the Victorian Coach of the Year Awards (Youth category) that will be announced at the awards dinner to be held at the MCG on Friday 7th November. Unfortunatley, as Luke was selected as a finalist last year, he is ineligible to be selected for this year’s awards.
Congratulations to both gentlemen and good luck to Owen in the upcoming State awards.
AFCA/VAFA would like to thank Coates Hire for their continuing support of the Coaches Association.
