The Rowville Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Joel Kearney as the 2016 Under 19 coach.

Having played his Junior football at South Croydon, Joel then played Senior football in the Central Highlands League whilst studying at the University of Ballarat. Upon returning to Melbourne he held various coaching roles at the Lilydale FC for a couple of seasons, including assistant coach of their reserves and held a match day role with the seniors analysing opposition match ups.

He also did post match day video reviews and post-game analysis, preparing videos for upcoming opposition reviews.

Joel has spent the past two seasons under the guidance and tutelage of senior Rowville FC coach Peter Bastinac, firstly in 2014 being the Forward line coach and 2015 being midfield coach. Again doing post-match video reviews and opposition analysis for the senior reviews.

Joel’s intimate knowledge of the overall football program, strong communication skills and undoubted enthusiasm for developing young men makes him the ideal candidate for the role.

Joel will commence contacting the entire 19’s playing list in the immediate future whilst a meet the coaches night will also be arranged and players notified.
