On behalf of the Board, the Woodville West Torrens Football Club would like to inform all Members, Sponsors and supporters that Senior Coach Sam Lonergan has accepted a coaching role at the Richmond Football Club.

While the Club is disappointed to be losing a fantastic coach and outstanding person in Sam, he will leave with the Club’s full blessing and support. Sam and the Richmond football Club have been very open and transparent in the process and have offered their full ongoing support in the search for the Club’s next senior coach.

While Sam’s time at the Club has only been for the 2019 season he will leave a lasting impression with the Club, in particular the playing group. Sam’s professionalism, knowledge and passion for the Club in his time was fantastic.

On the announcement, CEO Luke Powell said “While it is disappointing to lose a great person and coach in Sam, we fully support his decision to take on such a great opportunity in the AFL system. Our Club will always encourage its people to enhance and better their careers at the highest level, be that as a player, coach or an employee in the professional sector. Sam has endeared himself to this football club and has developed strong lasting relationships within his short time at the Club. Sam will continue to always be part of the Eagles family and we wish Sam and his family all the success in the next chapter of their lives”

Sam will continue with the Eagles up until Club Champion night and continue fully supporting the Reserves and U/18’s in their finals aspirations. We sincerely thank Sam for his outstanding contribution and work ethic to our Football Club and wish him, partner Kirrie, children Harper and Ellis all the best with their future at the Richmond Football Club.

The search for our next Senior Coach is already well underway and we will keep all valued people informed as the process progresses.

Well, that has to be the shortest time for an Eagles coach. Does he take his nephew with him?

I still feel used & abused. Seems like a mediocre coaching record is the pathway to AFL career
