I presume this is Barry Kidd's old job,I heard he was treated the same as Cuzza at Willy,taking a different direction and all that cobblers,very disappointing if true.


Well said CGull - bloody disgrace what happened to Cuzza at Willy!!! Not many smarter blokes in footy than him.


Two of the better people that were good friends of the Roosters for all those early years.

Barry was well educated under the Saults regime & a very tolerent person !!

No doubt Port will select a modern day hotshot that will be gone in a couple of years.

Good luck to Barry.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green


Spot on Digs!!

Great memories when I was forward scout at Willy many years ago and always received a nice welcome from You at Ballarat.

Fantastic players like Julian Field and Johnny Polkinghorne going around made North Ballarat a wonderful footy club.

Hope you are well Digs.

Cheers cisco

I believe it is Anthony Piccolo's position as he has taken up a position elsewhere. 


* It's time to restore the VFA name.

Barry Kidd is general manager/CEO is he not? I think you will find that the advertised position is a different role, concentrating on the football side of things rather than running the club, paying the bills, dealing with 'stakeholders'. etc. Willi has a CEO AND a football operations manager, so I wouldn't go writing Barry Kidd's obituary just yet.

Yes Anthony Piccolo was Football Manager but said he has taken up a spot elsewhere .

Barry Kidd is General Manager.

Thanks Cisco,

I think i now know who you are !!

I am well thanks but unfortunately my clubs not .

You would never believe that so few could inflict so much damage.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green


Onya Digs,

The comp has changed for the worse in my opinion.

Best wishes and hope your health is well.

Just as a matter of interest Digs who was the best player, in your time, to pull on a Roosters guernsey?

Cheers cisco
