Yamba Football Club seek coach

YAMBA Football Club is getting serious.

Following a successful 2009 season and gaining promotion to North Coast Football’s First Division, the club is now setting goals for the 2010 season.

With local rivals the Maclean Bobcats the reigning premiers in First Division, Yamba know that competing in the top league will be a serious task.

Entry into North Coast Football’s First Division requires clubs to field two teams (a First team and an Under-19 youth team), which has Yamba needing an extra team for 2010.

Club treasurer, Mark Skippings, said: “Yamba is keen to attract committed new players at all levels in order for the club to be ready come February sign-up.”

One thing is certain; following the successes of Clarence sporting teams in 2009, the scene is set for an exciting 2010.

Yamba has operated successfully without a senior coach since joining the North Coast Football competition back in 2006.

First Division status was achieved during 2009 through a combination of experience and skill within the team, however, the challenge of playing at a higher level next year requires a new approach.

With this in mind, Yamba FC are looking for a senior coach who can take the club forward into 2010.

Backed by a growing number of youth players, a passionate group of senior players, financial and other assistance, it is hoped the right coach can play a vital part in developing and elevating further the club’s profile within the competition and the Clarence area.

As this is the challenging realm of senior football, the club says coaching experience would be ideal, however, leading a First Division team comes with the pre-season opportunity to attain the North Coast Football Zone Senior Coaching Certificate/Licence. Anyone interested in being part of a well-run, sociable football club on the rise who may be interested in the head coaching position, should contact Mark Skippings on 0421 724 776 or email yamba.fc@gmail.com.
