The Mt Gravatt AFC Board is very pleased to announce that Adam Boon has been appointed as head coach for the 2019 season. We are also very happy to advise that Mitch Ferguson will remain with the club as a senior coach and will administer game days from the coach’s box. We believe this is an exciting combination for the club.
Adam, or Boonie as many affectionately know him, has chosen to come to Mt Gravatt following a distinguished playing career in the NEAFL at Redlands for the opportunity to transition into the senior coaching fraternity. Qualified for many years with a Level 2 coaching accreditation, Adam has a long history of coaching through the talent pathways with his full time employment of several years at Park Ridge High AFL School of excellence program. He also has many years of coaching in the state school boys championships as well as presently within the Brisbane Lions Academy program.
Adam impressed through the application stages with his enthusiasm, contemporary AFL knowledge and no nonsense approach to the game. Coupled with the reliability, experience and guile of Mitch Ferguson, who was senior coach for many years at Mayne and last year as assistant to Dan Webster here at Mt Gravatt, we are very excited about what lays ahead for 2019. We would like to acknowledge the cooperation and interaction of Mitch and the senior playing group during this process.
This announcement is perfect timing with pre-Xmas training commencing next Tuesday, 4th December. More precise details about player arrangements to be announced in the coming days. Welcome Adam!
