After an extensive search Old Carey Grammarians FC is delighted to announce the appointment of Glenn Cox to the position of Senior Coach for season 2014.
Glenn has a rich amateur football history. Having played at Marcellin Old Collegians FC, Glenn was an instrumental part of Marcellin’ s rise from C grade in 1997 to A grade in 2000 where he won the Woodrow Medal. Glenn was club captain in 2004 and 2005 as well as a VAFA representative. Following his retirement Glenn turned his hand to coaching at Marcellin. Firstly as an assistant in 2007 and 2008 (B grade premiers) then as senior coach in 2009 in A grade before stepping aside due to birth of his first child. For the record:

In announcing Glenn as our senior coach Old Carey is very excited to have secured a VAFA person who will lead our club in 2014 upon our return to Premier B. Glenn’s football philosophy is built around hard work, defensive pressure, contested ball and skilful delivery. With pre-season looming our players will certainly get plenty of this instilled into them as they prepare for an improved season in 2014.
With the return of Cam Howat and Joel Rice from injury plus some more news to follow on recruiting the club is excited about some obvious improvement. The club has scheduled a get together where Glenn and our new assistants will get to meet the playing group ahead of pre-season, details to be confirmed.
Old Carey is very excited by the appointment and thrilled to have a person of Glenn’s quality and experience at our club at a very important time in our football history. On behalf of the club and our extended football community, we welcome Glenn to Old Carey and wish him all the very best for season 2014.
