Tasmania’s men’s Vikings Futsal team has failed to make the grand final at the national championships in Sydney.
Tasmania went down 7-3 to Western Australia, Tasmania’s goals coming from Nick Harrison, Isaac Turner and Matt Smith.
Tasmania then lost 5-3 to Victoria, our goals coming from Matt Smith, Scott Fenn and Jacob Huigsloot.
New Town Eagles have re-elected last year’s committee at the recent AGM.
As reported earlier on this blog, Darren Frost is again the president of Eagles.
Bill Shackcloth is the vice-president, while Andrew Leszczynski is the secretary and treasurer.
The other committee members are Chris Leszczynski, James Lyons, Daniel Grabek, Adam Colgrave, Richard Rybak and Steven Drinkwater.
Just to reiterate the club’s coaching positions, George Krambousanos is the senior coach, assisted by Peter Wass and Kevin Clamp.
Martin Nidorfer and Michael Murray are the coaches of the reserves, while Wade Savage and Adam Shackcloth will coach the under-19s.
Shane Revell is the junior development/structure officer and will also work with the under-19s.
“We want to get the same training pans set from under-13s through to under-18s,” said Frost. “That way we hope to make it easier for players to move up and down in the junior leagues during the season and also for their following season.
“If they are all doing the same training plan, then it will make it easier for players that are coming into a team that is not their own.”
Aubert Ruzigandekwe is the new coach of Division One club, Hobart United.
He takes over from Mark Broadbent.
Ruzigandekwe, a French speaker from Rwanda, played professionally in Belgium before coming to Tasmania with his family.
He joined Tilford Zebras and was exceptionally skilful as a midfielder, catching the eye with his speed and ball skills.
