Richmond VFL coach, Tim Clarke, is expecting the Club’s inaugural standalone team to have a uniting effect in 2014, and beyond.
Clarke, along with new Richmond development coaches Max Bailey and Andrew McQualter, and VFL strategy manager Wayne Campbell, are putting the finishing touches on the team’s VFL playing list.
A number of player announcements are expected in the coming weeks, as the Club finalises its squad ahead of its first season in Victoria’s second-tier competition.
Clarke coached the Coburg Tigers in the final year of their alignment with Richmond in 2013, and believes the new VFL team will amalgamate the Tigers’ senior, development and VFL programs.
“We can go and recruit players to help our players’ development, rather than go and align ourselves with another club, and they’re focussed on their players,” Clarke told Matthew Richardson on Roar Vision.
