The UNSW/ES Bulldogs have confirmed a stellar coaching panel for the 2019 season, led by Melbourne-born Anthony Ries and 250 game player Jemma Still.
Ries, father of Bulldogs’ up-and-comer Max Ries and previous Manager of the premiership winning U19s team, is excited to share his knowledge and passion for the game as he takes on the reigns as our Premier Division W Head Coach.
“I’ve been watching the growth of women’s football since the inception of the AFLW competition, and I’m looking forward to being a part of this firsthand”, said Ries.
“I love this football club, and I can’t wait to hit the ground running in this new role.”
Still, five time premiership winner and Bulldogs’ Life Member, will now take on the position as our Reserves coach, a position she’s eager to step into.
“This is the ideal role for me to develop as a coach and give back to the playing group”, said Still.
“We are perfectly placed now for the 2019 season in terms of providing skills development and game strategy for all levels”
Ries and Still will be ably supported by three assistant / skill development coaches in injured three-time premiership player, Jasmine Smith, former premiership winning coach, Melissa Khoury, and 2018 skills coach Andy Jones.
The club is still accepting new player registrations for the 2019 season and invites players of all ability to join our training on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Village Green from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.
For those interested in a support role, we are also still seeking two game day managers for administrative assistance and overall coordination. Interested participants are asked to contact Jemma Still (0424 540 566 / firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the role in more detail.
