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.
Michael Doble said “we are delighted that two well-known and respected coaches can share the load and work together in the quest to take the Club back to back in Premier Division.”
