Dear Monaro Players, Family and Friends,
It is with much anticipation that we can now announce our 2015 Head Coach for Monaro Panthers, Graeme Plath.
Monaro's Head Coach is charged with coaching our Premier League First Grade Team and leading our Premier Men's Program which includes our U20's and U18's as well.
Graeme has 25 years of coaching experience from Capital Football juniors to Men's First Grade and the whole range in between. Graeme will bring to the club a professional approach to all aspects of football, a clear leadership for our men's program, a culture which will develop the best in our players with a passionate and positive mindset. Graeme has a desire to see this club succeed and to be a leader in our football community and is ready to apply his experience and skill to make this happen.
We welcome Graeme to the club as Head Coach.
It is also with great pleasure that we announce our successful application in gaining a three year licence to compete in the Capital Football Men's and Women's Premier program. Not all club applicants were successful and not all applicants were able to attain three year licences. It is a credit to the Monaro team past and present that we are in such a strong position.
