National Committee appoints National Coach for Season 2013
Posted by Vietnam Swans on March 27, 2013
The National Committee has formally appointed Saigon Coach, Andy Glendinning, as the Club’s National Coach for Season 2013.
The first challenge for the new National Coach will be this weekend when the Vietnam Swans play our second round of the East Asian Football League against Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur.
National President Phil Johns said this morning that he was “delighted to announce that the National Committee has resolved to appoint Andy Glendinning to the position of National Coach for 2013.
“Andy has an outstanding footy record back in Australia.
“Andy will also spend less time on the ground which will allow him to put more effort into his coaching. Importantly, this then frees up some mental space for some of our senior players who will be able to focus more on their own games, confident in the knowledge that Andy is analysing the game from an overall perspective.
“So, we should be able to get more out of the coaching and more out of the players. A “nguyen-nguyen” situation.
“Andy will of course work very closely with his counterpart in Hanoi, Dave “SOS” Skowronski, as well as the leadership groups.”
From all the Swannies, congratulations Andy!
