CASEY Scorpions have been jolted by the resignation of senior coach Brett Lovett, who was halfway through his two year contract.

Lovett, judged the VFL coach of 2012 after steering the Casey Scorpions to the minor premiership, told the club yesterday that he would not be going on.

The former Melbourne star said this morning that the demands of the part-time role were too great.

He said he’d stood down for family and work reasons, “in that order”.

“It’s just getting to that stage of life where I need to dedicate a bit more time to other, more important things in my life,” Lovett told Local Footy.

CASEY coach Brett Lovett says his side's record in the clinches this season could give it a significant advantage in pushing deep into September.

The Scorpions took the minor premiership on Saturday by defeating Sandringham 12.14 (86) to 10.7 (67) in blustery conditions at Casey Fields.

Remarkably, they finished on top despite their percentage of 105.76.

It reflected their ability to win every close match and Lovett said it would be a good quality come the finals.

On Sunday the Scorpions host Werribee in a qualifying final.

"I'm sure the guys feel very confident coming in that we can take on really any side," Lovett said post-match.

COLEMAN Medallist Brendan Fevola could make a shock SANFL appearance next year, with West Adelaide considering an audacious bid for the former Carlton spearhead.

Fevola, who booted 69 goals for VFL side Casey Scorpions this year, last week hinted a move to Richmond was on the cards if an offer was "healthy enough to leave Melbourne".
