The Board of Directors is very pleased to announce the Club has signed a two year contract with Bernie Perenara to the Head Coach position of our Premier side. Bernie shares our vision for Richmond as the club where all players know they will improve themselves by coming under the guidance of our Richmond coaches and trainers. Bernie’s coaching ability is recognised throughout league circles, and he has turned down an offer from a major Fox club to stay with Richmond. As Head Coach, Bernie will play a significant role in improving our players in 2015 and 2016. And so to this end, the Board is also delighted that Bernie has accepted the additional role of Coaching Development Officer specifically to coach and improve individually all our Richmond coaches from U13 grade upwards. We are looking forward to next year with great optimism, with the goal of winning all games in 2015 and jumping back into the Fox. Bernie’s appointment is the first step towards this.
The Board of Directors has determined that we will re-open the Club’s bar in 2015 for limited hours on Saturdays from 4.00-9.30pm. While glad that the drinking culture that had started developing has disappeared, the Board recognises it is desirable to socialise with fellow members after game day, and that having alcohol for sale over the bar is part of this. We are now calling for expressions of interest for the role of Bar Manager. Please Email or phone Gus on 021 083 69836 or speak to any Board Director.
The AGM will be held on Monday 24 November at the Clubrooms 6.30pm. The agenda will be published in due course. All nominations to be submitted from 14 days before the AGM up to the start of the meeting- either by hand to the secretary or by Email. The nomination shall be signed by a nominator and seconder, and the person so nominated. Positions are Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Senior Convenor, Junior Convenor and/or Board Director. Only Club members will have speaking rights. Agenda to be provided in due course.
