Lions secure coaches for 2018
THE Heywood Football Netball Club is already deep into its preparations for the 2018 South West District Football Netball League season and this week has secured its leading coaches.
Heywood’s senior football coach next season will be Nick Johnstone, taking over the reins from Shane Keegan.
Johnstone comes to the position with a tremendous football resume – an important player for the Lions during the final stages of the Western Border Football League era, Johnstone captained Allansford and won two Warrnambool District Football League best and fairest awards, and was a premiership player with South Warrnambool in 2011.
Johnstone played a huge role in Heywood’s undefeated run through this year’s home and away season and finished in third place in this year’s South West league best and fairest award.
