Trobers appoint former Premiership Coach Andrew Sutherland to lead the Senior Men for season 2020

Trobers appoint former Premiership Coach Andrew Sutherland to lead the Senior Men for season 2020

20 years after guiding the Club to its 1999 Senior Men’s premiership Andrew Sutherland returns for his second stint at leading our Trober Men after being appointed the 2020 Senior Men’s Coach.

Andy comes with a wealth of coaching knowledge but more importantly a wealth of knowledge about how our Club has operated over the past 52 seasons and the rich University culture of the Club. Andy, like many of our players, moved to Melbourne to study at La Trobe University, living on Menzies College he found his way down to our football club. He quickly made his way into the senior team and played 112 games for the Club, playing predominately as a defender Andy was selected in the Clubs 1977-1986 Team of the Decade. After focusing on his career Andy found his way back to the Club as the Senior Men’s Coach from 1999-2001 where he led the Club to the 1999 Senior Men’s Premiership and promotion to VAFA Division 1. Andy went on to spent the next nine seasons as Senior Assistant Coach in VAFA Premier Division for St Kevin’s OB from 2002-03, VAFA Premier B for Mazenod OC from 2004-08 and VAFA Representative Football from 2009-10. Andy was selected as the Coach of our La Trobe University FC 1997-2006 Team of the Decade.

Club Legend Tony Sheehan when speaking of Andy’s success in 1999 says “Andy proved to be a great student of the game, meticulous in his planning and supportive of his players” which ultimately led to his success as a coach. Now back coaching the Club, Andy is hoping to provide the players in 2020 with that supportive environment to create a well-structured and fast paced brand of footy that will hopefully see the Trobers taste some success next season.

With good numbers out on the track since early November we are very excited to have Andrew Sutherland taking up the role as Senior Men’s Coach as we lead into our final pre-Christmas training session this Thursday evening. We wish both Andy and the Men’s teams all the best for season 2020!
