With Head Coach, Zak Beer locked in before the season ended, it's great to get some continuity ahead next season. Coach Beer is joined again by assistant coaches, Nick Kellaway and Angus Sinclair, whilst Head of Athletic Performance, Gavin Aquilina is also back for another season.

2024 First Grade Coaching Structure:

  • Zak Beer - Head Coach
  • Nick Kellaway - Assistant, Forwards & Breakdown
  • Angus Sinclair - Assistant, Defence & Skills Coach
  • Gavin Aquilina - Head of Athletic Performance

Let's hear what Head Coach, Zak Beer had to say ahead of the announcement.

"We pride ourselves on being an aspirational club for both players and coaches, and it's fantastic to be able to promote Angus Sinclair into our Defence Coach role, in addition to his skills capacity, continuing on the great foundations laid by Matt Gordon".

"The Norths coaching unit features strong cohesion and stability which are foundations to any successful unit and together with a growth mindset it allows this group to build further on the successes of last season."

"Pre-season is well underway with strong numbers to kick-off our campaign with the Playing and Coaching Group working hard on-field as we launch into Season 2024."

I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing the group well for the upcoming season. Watch this space for some exciting announcements ahead of the 2024 season regarding the rest of the club's coaching setup.
