Club Announcement: Senior Coaches for 2018

The President of the St Kevin's Old Boys' Football Club, Michael Doble has confirmed that well-known SKOB identities Guy Martyn and Tom Williams will share senior coaching duties for the 2018 season.

Guy Martyn was an outstanding player with the Sandringham Dragons in the TAC competition before joining Sandringham in the VFL where he enjoyed considerable success. He returned to play with his junior club, Hampton Rovers in 2009 before becoming Senior Coach in 2013. He coached Hampton Rovers to successive premiership in 2013 (D1 Section) and 2014 (Premier C) underlining his coaching ability. He coached Hampton in Premier B in 2015 and did an outstanding job to avoid relegation.

Tom Williams was a prodigious junior football talent, taken at pick number 6 in the AFL draft by the Western Bulldogs in 2004. Unfortunately injuries curtailed a very promising career but he still played 85 AFL games in eight seasons. He was nominated for the NAB Rising Star following an exciting performance against Richmond in 2007. He retired from AFL football in 2014. 

In 2015, Tom was a Senior Assistant Coach with Old Scotch and was an Assistant Coach with Footscray in the VFL in 2016. Footscray won the VFL premiership that year and mirrored the game plan used by the AFL’s premiership winning team, the Western Bulldogs.

Both Guy and Tom joined SKOBFC in 2017 as a Senior Assistant Coaches  and were integral to the Club’s historic first Premier Division premiership.

2018 SKOB Saints

Dear Saints Players (returning and new)

It is a great privilege to lead the coaching team for SKOB Saints in 2018. I have had a strong relationship with the club having taught and coached at St Kevin’s College for ten years, had three sons attend St Kevin’s College and coached at the SKOB for three years. I am a father of ten children and have coached football for 30 years. I look forward to what we can achieve together this season.

I would first like to acknowledge the great work Pat Di Natale has done in his two years as Senior Coach of the Saints. He is very excited about his new position as assistant coach at Oakleigh Chargers Under 18’s next season and will be working with John Taylor in the under 19’s SKOB’s Premier Division.

2018 promises to be another exciting year. We have a great coaching panel to help develop every single person at the club both in their football and as a person. The coaching panel this year is made up of Kim Ledder, Robin Bowles, Titch Callahan, Chris Morley, Richard Lewis and myself. We all believe it is a great honor and responsibility to lead and develop young women in such a supportive and caring community.

As a coaching panel we are committed to TEAM in everything we do. The team mantra is simple. What are you prepared to do for TEAM to be play in a PREMIERSHIP TEAM? Central to this is developing strong relationships, leadership, character and a strong community where we CARE FOR and RESPECT each other at all times.

Vale - Robert (Bob) Steward

The SKOBFC Community will be saddened to hear of the recent passing of former Club Captain Bob Steward. Bob played 81 senior games for SKOB from 1952 to 1958 and was a member of SKOB’s first Premiership team which won the D Section flag in 1952. Bob captained the Club in 1955.

Bob was a gifted athlete and was Under 14 and Under 16 athletic champion while attending St Kevin’s College from 1946 to 1951. He represented the College in athletics, cricket and football and was a member of the 1950 First XVIII team which many regarded as the one of Melbourne’s best ever school football teams.


Our thoughts go out to Bob’s wife Colette and family
