Just a fortnight after his departure from Wyong Roos, former head coach, Tony Clarke, has been named the Kincumber Colts’ Head Coach for 2020.
It’s a coup signing for the Colts who have a vast but developing junior talent pool and a young and enthusiastic Club Committee who beat several other clubs in the scramble to get Clarke on side, following his shock axing from the Roos.
Clarke had been with the Roos for five years and in that tenure, he’d coached their First Grade side to four grand finals and one premiership.
But after the Roos lost their third consecutive grand final in September, Clarke was dismissed, with the Roos installing First Grade Captain, Mitch Williams, into the position.
While Clarke wasn’t thrilled with how he parted ways with the Roos, he said that there was no bad blood between himself and the club and that he was excited at the prospect of working with the Colts to develop the club’s roster, with player recruitment at the top of the agenda.
