SANDRINGHAM is searching for a new senior coach after Andy Lovell resigned this evening.

Lovell, the development coach at Sandy's VFL partner St Kilda, is returning to Perth.

He coached Sandringham for three years and is completing his second season with the Saints.

The Zebras fell apart after Round 4 this year, losing 11 of their last 14 games to miss the finals for the third consecutive year.

However, the Victorian Country representative decided to move to Melbourne and join the St Kilda-aligned Zebras.

The brilliant centreman told the Zebras increasing work commitments would prevent him from playing on.

“Yes, it’s a big blow,” Sandy general manager John Mennie said.

Summers told The Leader he had a heavy heart as he phoned president Gerry Ryan and coach Andy Lovell to inform them of his decision.

He said he had always enjoyed his time at the club, had been part of a wonderful era and made many friends.

“It was tough making the calls but you’ve just got to take the emotion out of it,” Summers said.
