Search for new pres.

December 05, 2017

Mathoura Football and Netball Club will look to appoint a new president when it holds a second annual general meeting tomorrow night.

Despite holding a pre-AGM meeting followed by the first AGM last week, the club remains without a president and vice president.

Outgoing president Leonie Francis said she was happy to do the job again but that the club’s board wanted to go in a different direction for the 2018 season.

‘‘I was willing to fill the role again but the board felt we needed someone new,’’ she said.

‘‘I enjoyed my time as president and I’m sure they’ll find a suitable replacement.

‘‘There are a lot of people with plenty of passion for the club that could fill the role.

‘‘I’m willing to support whoever is chosen wherever they need help.’’

The club is also still seeking a senior football coach after Phil Hazelman stepped down from the top job.

Francis said the club had been working hard to find a replacement.

‘‘I’ve made a few calls and some aren’t quite sure if they’re ready for the responsibility (as senior coach),’’ she said.

‘‘I’d like a mentoring program for coaching to start at the club.

‘‘It would help us ensure that a player is ready to lead the side and would have us ready for the future.’’
