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.

Former Richmond development coach Tim Clarke will resume his position in the Tigers’ coaching department, after a year away from the Club.

Clarke, who has spent the past 12 months overseas, is returning to Tigerland as a development coach, a position he held for two years (2010-11).

He will also take over as senior coach of Richmond’s VFL affiliate, Coburg Tigers, in 2013, replacing Adam Potter.

Richmond will break from its alignment with Coburg at the end of next season, forming a stand-alone team in the VFL competition from 2014.

That decision was brought forward by a year, thanks to the outstanding support of the Fighting Tiger Fund.
