Adam brings a wealth of experience to the job and will continue on the path taken this year in developing our young players and preparing them for senior football. He played over 100 games with the Rams and has served as assistant coach at Doncaster in a premiership year. He has also coached junior teams at Heathmont FC for the past 4 years.
Collingwood 1990 Premiership player Doug Barwick also returns to the Rams in 2018 in a player development role. He will run clinics for junior players at the club as well as playing a key role in the development of coaches at the club. Doug has previously played and coached at East Burwood. He has also been assistant Coach at the Eastern Ranges in the TAC Cup and been an assistant coach with Box Hill.
What all these guys share apart from a rich history of success is a passion for the East Burwood Football Club. They are fully committed to instilling a winning culture at the club and restoring the club to being a power house of the EFL.
They want to make the Rams a destination club and to develop the next premiership team from the talented group of young players already at the club.

I hope to update you all soon on this development. Current committee met with all coaches this week at Piccolino’s for dinner there was a great buzz and anticipation, enthusiasm on the coming season. I thank all supporters who emailed me direct in appreciation of the past players we have bought back to the club who will be a huge help in moving our great club forward.
