THE Mareeba United Football Club has appointed coaches for the 2020 season.
After a disappointing season, the men’s premier division is looking to field a more competitive side next year with a number of youth hopefuls stepping up. They also hope to retain a number of senior players from this year.
The possible return of Nicholas Tallarico in defence will be a huge boost for the club. Tallarico was out all of last season through injury.
New coach Angelo Tatti, who was assistant to Perry Krakowcysk, last season will take full control of the club’s premier team. His assistant, Mario Terranova will give the team proper management with a true local touch.
The reserve grade coach is the all-conquering Dennis Allen who took the team to the premiership and grand final last year and just fell short of the treble.
The Premier Ladies coach for 2020 will be Marcello Savaglio who will draw on his many years of experience coaching in the men’s division to garner a very talented group of ladies who last year made the semifinals.
The youth division will be coached by none other than Luciano Avolio with his side kick and manager Genio Quintieri. The duo has a proven track record of developing the youth and will continue in the same vein next season.
It’s great to see players step up and take on coaching roles in the Fillies division with last year’s golden glove winner Eleanor Silver taking on the role.
The Fillies division was one of the success stories of ladies football and they will continue to attract attention this coming season.
The clubs new Technical Director is Sandro Soncin who will be assisted by Andrew Osborne.
