Peters takes charge of the Darras
MATT Peters will lead the Tyrendarra’s senior side in the 2019 South West District Football League season after being appointed coach on Tuesday.
Peters is a born and bred Tyrendarra man, growing up around the club and beginning his football career out at the Darras in 2001.
17 years later, Peters has five premierships under his belt with the club as well as captaining the senior side for more than 10 years.
With premiership and leadership experience Peters hopes to rally the playing group and make the most of 2019.
“I’m really looking forward to the season and putting things in place to help develop on the field and off the field,” Peters said.
“I wasn’t really sure if I could do the job but a few people from the club encouraged me to put my hand up and give it a go.
“I’d been thinking about it for a few years and now is the time to do it.
“With Ollie (Peters’ son) at the age he is (16 months old) I’m keen to give coaching a crack now and then when he gets a bit older I can be involved in his sport.”
