Peter Wood Appointed U19 Premier Coach for Season 2012

29 October 2011

Peter Wood has accepted the position of coach of the U19 Premier division team for 2012.

Peter Wood has accepted the position of coach of the U19 Premier division team for 2012. Peter is a former St. Bernard's premiership player (1987) who has been heavily involved as a club coach, inter-league coach and development coach with the Calder Cannons (refer CV following).

Consistent with the club's focus on developing our young players, Peter will focus on the development of as many players in the U19 Premier team as possible in preparation for senior football.

Regardless of on-field results, ultimately the success of the U19 Premier team will be reflected in the development of the playing group, individually and collectively. This year, key elements of the seniors and reserves game plan and game style will also be deployed to the U19 Premier team, in an attempt to improve the learning environment for our younger footballers, promote a challenging and rewarding experience and, ultimately, make as many players "match ready" if they are asked to step into the senior or reserves side.

Peter will take some time to consider his coaching support appointments. These will be announced in due course.
Please join me in wishing Peter well in his new role.
