Sandringham Football Club are excited to announce Adrian Connolly as our Senior Coach for the 2020 season. Adrian has been with the club for four years as a senior assistant coach. He brings an exceptional work ethic and high degree of experience to the role.
Adrian has had a long career in coaching having spent many years in the VAFA competition with local clubs Ormond, De La Salle and St Bede’s Mentone Tigers. Adrian then spent two years at Frankston as their midfield coach under current Southern Saints VFLW coach, Paddy Hill. Adrian has worked hard in his time at Sandringham strengthening local community contacts and working with the new young breed of players, making the transition to VFL football. In conjunction with David Cannizzo, Adrian was instrumental in introducing the Sandringham FC Community Combine Day, which has turned out to be very fruitful.
Adrian, on his appointment, was excited about the new role. “I would like to thank the club for this opportunity. Almost all the players that were signed pre-COVID19 have decided to play in 2020 and I am excited to see how we can develop this list this season”.
