New Lambton FC’s, Football Department has been created to maintain and install cultural and technical discipline surrounding the elements most important to the success of the Club. This is an exciting development and we are extremely excited to have such a wealth of experience and knowledge within our Club. It is expected that the Football Department will work in unison for the overall success of the Club.
The newly formed Football Department will comprise of;
Head of Football – Chris Brain (Life Member) – Player Management and Club identity and culture
Director of Coaching – Jim Foley (Life Member) – Senior Technical Development and connection and recognition of our past
Technical Director – Cas Wright – Youth and Junior Technical Development
We also have the pleasure of announcing our Coaches for our elite NL1 Youth teams for the 2020 season.
With Youth development and performance being a core focus at NLFC, we are ecstatic to be able to fill roles with Coaches handpicked by Director of Coaching, Jim Foley.
Our squads will be formally unveiled in the coming days, we are proud that most of our successful 2019 players are returning, along with our target of at least 70% New Lambton developed players being achieved, once again.
Of special note, we’d like to welcome Paul Robertson, who has moved across from our WPL 17’s, along with Alex Delmoni, who’ll be joining Paul, after 2 seasons with the Central Coast Mariners.
Paul John has joined us from Cooks Hill, and Isaak Tyrell makes the step from playing into Coaching, as a current member of our ZL1 squad.
We look forward to seeing what the Football Department and our NL1 Youth Coaches can achieve both on and off the park in 2020. Fly high Eagles!
