Tigers’ Coaching line-up anticipates 2018 SWFL season

South Bunbury Football Club’s coaching staff are gearing up for an action-packed 2018 season of football.

Tigers’ coaches Jack Wilson (Colts), Teagan Smith (women), Kane Westbrook (Reserves) and David Obal (League) met with club representatives and fans earlier this month.

Obal, taking over from Mark Docking, was excited to take the reins and deliver positive results next season.

“We want to get the league side back in the top five, the colts and reserves side were very competitive this year so the challenge is to get the league back up there,” he said.

“The challenge is to build some stability in the club so that the quality continues on from year to year.”

Obal had been in discussions over the past three years to move from Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault to the Tigers.

For the Reserves side, Westbrook was determined to clinch back-to-back premierships.

“Being the reigning premiers we’ve become the hunted, so if we can apply pressure and still maintain that status we can finish in the top five and hopefully go back to back,” he said.

“A lot of guys are staying around so if we can maintain a core group we can build on that.”

Smith was excited to see how the women’s competition was going to progress and expand in 2018.

“We had a really positive season, one of our players – Katie Grieve – got drafted to Carlton, so it’s about maintaining that good reputation that we have at South Bunbury,” she said.

Wilson, having coached the Year 11s side, was eager to get started with the colts next year.

“The main goal this year is to get as many guys playing league football as soon as they can,” he said.

“We’re looking to focus on correct gym work and strength building to get them what will hopefully be successful league careers.”

The challenge is to build some stability in the club so that the quality continues on from year to year.

John Castrilli was also recently announced as the club’s new president.
