Mark Kamenic has signed on again in 2019 on the back of a really positive season. Mark is very much team orientated, loves coaching and teaching our rising juniors and is passionate about being part of our club success.
He will provide solid back up for JC and is always willing to help in any way – as highlighted by his desire to coach our Under 16.5 team as well in 2019
C Grade Coach Brad Ebert
Ebo had good success on and off the field last year where he was able to recruit many new players to the club, and work on achieving a team of enthusiastic boys who wanted to be a part of our club.
He’s been a long time supporter of Glenunga and remains committed to ensuring our senior list keeps growing.
Assistant Coach David Pittman
Pitto has been a mentor to many of our players over the past 3 seasons and will continue in this role in 2019.
He brings outstanding knowledge of the game to our footy club and highest level experience as both a player and assistant coach.
