Young guns to share the lead

TWIN CITY has acted from within to fill its vacant coaching position, with young players Cayne Wilhelm and Jamie Block to co-coach the Albury-Wodonga Football Association club next year.

The appointments were ratified at a meeting on Wednesday night, with Nick Wagner getting the nod as club president and Byron Pattison as its treasurer.

Wagner, who held the president’s position last season before stepping down, said the Wanderers were delighted to secure the services of Wilhelm and Block, who will coach the seniors and reserves.

They replace Simon Randall, who will coach Albury City in 2013.

“We understand the difficulties that it will present both coaches being players but for any issues that arise, someone will be able to help out and fill the gap,” Wagner said yesterday.

“Cayne’s been at the club his whole life and with all the support and experience we have at the club I’m sure he’ll do well.

“Jamie has been at the club his whole playing career as well, I think, and he keeps the backline together for the senior team.”

While the Wanderers won’t have a vice-president, Wagner said that decision was in line with Football Federation Victoria guidelines.

“We’ve adopted the new FFV template for how to run an amateur club and there are only three (on the executive),” he said.

Wagner’s appointment comes after Twin City failed to fill its position of president at its annual general meeting for the first time in 39 years, when no nominations were received for the position.
