Posted on - Featured, PEGS

PEGS Football Club is pleased to announce senior coach, Dane Pound, has re-signed for the next two seasons and will again lead the club in 2019.

A former PEGS student, Dane joined PEGS as a player in 2011 and won a reserves premiership as a player in 2014. Dane led the club to the Division 1 preliminary final in his first season as senior coach in 2016, before orchestrating arguably the greatest grand final comeback in VAFA competition history to win the 2017 Division 1 premiership. With PEGS down by 57 points to St Mary’s Salesian in the second quarter, PEGS kicked 15 goals to three and ran out 11-point winners.

That same year Dane was awarded VAFA Divisions Coach of the Year.

In 2018, PEGS had an inconsistent year due to injuries and players heading overseas but one that saw a lot of upside in its group of younger players.

Dane is excited to continue with the club and sees an exciting future ahead with the club’s crop of young talent including Max Philpot, Harrison Wade, Scott Whillas and Jack Condon and a strong mix of experienced talent.

A highly regarded up and coming coach, Dane is highly respected among the PEGS community and has shown amazing commitment to his players, the club and leading PEGS into the future.
