Thank You 💚💛 St Marys Football Sporting and Social Club would like to officially thank both Rick Nolan and Josh Heath for their contribution to coaching and development over the past 5 Seasons at SMFC.
Sadly, both have elected not to Coach our Men’s Premier League (MPL) and Men’s Division One sides respectively, this coming NTFL Season.
Rick has a fantastic success rate in the MPL guiding us to 3 successful Grand Final appearances over the past 5 years whilst never missing a Finals Series during that time. In addition to Coaching the MPL, Rick has made a significant contribution to the development of our Juniors and our up and coming Coaches during this time as well.
Josh has also made a significant contribution to the development of our Division One side during this time, with a Grand Final berth for the side in the 2016/17 Season. Josh has worked very closely with Rick and the MPL team to achieve the best outcomes for SMFC at both the MPL and Division One competitions.
Over the past 2 Seasons, SMFC has debuted 22 players under the age of 18 in our Mens’ Premier League, including two U16 boys this year, proving that SMFC provides pathways for Talented Juniors to play at the top level in the NTFL competition. Without the commitment of Coaches like Rick and Josh to this process, our next generation of young talented footballers would not be ready for senior football in the NTFL
Thank you Rick and Josh, we wish you well for the future.
Steve Ludwig (President)
