MUSC is delighted to announce the appointment of the following coaches to the 2012 State & Provisional League Coaching Group:


State League Division 3 N/W Senior Squad Coach: Sam Matheas

State League Division 3 N/W Senior Squad Assistant Coach: Shoni Maguire

Sam continues in the role he held for the 2011 Season.  Following a strong 3rd placed finish in 2011, MUSC has elected to continue the working relationship with Sam who has displayed exemplary dedication to the position along with organisational skills of the highest order.  His attention to detail, including the ability to identify and give talented individuals an opportunity at State League Division 3 Senior level along with a dedication to fit into the MUSC culture and actively foster an inclusive environment, makes Sam the ideal fit for Head Coach at MUSC.

Sam will be ably assisted by Shoni Maguire.  Shoni moves on from his role of State League Division 3 N/W Reserve Squad Coach after 3 years in the position.  He will continue his coaching development at MUSC at Senior Squad level in 2012.

Provisional League Division 3 S/E Senior Squad Coach: Duncan Ryan

Duncan boasts a playing history of some 20+ years in the UK.  Following stints as a club physiotherapist and referee (including a FIFA registered Beach Soccer Referee), Duncan's career in coaching and management began in 1993/94.  Duncan migrated to Australia in 2003 and joins MUSC following previous coaching stints at Collingwood City, Epping City, Watsonia Heights, DOCS Academy (North Eltham) and Northern Falcons, including a 1-week educational tour at the Sao Paolo senior team training camp in Brazil in July 2009.

State League Division 3 N/W Reserve Squad Coach: George Traikovski

Following a senior playing career spanning from 1984 through to 2005 that involved stints at Victorian Premier League, State 1, State 2 and Provisional League as well as WA Premier League level, George began his coaching career in 2005 at Provisional League Division 1 level.  Since then he has concentrated his coaching efforts and development at youth level with talented youngsters ranging from the U/15 to U/18 age group.  George's experience stands him in good stead to develop similar players at Reserve team level in preparation for senior team football in the future and joins MUSC following previous coaching stints at Moreland United, Plenty Valley Lions, Keilor Park and North East Diamonds.

Provisional League Division 3 S/E Reserve Squad Coach: Michael Antolos

Following a senior playing career from 1984-1990 as part of the famed "golden generation" at Croydon City SC coached by luminaries such as Miron Bleiberg and Jim Tanzi, Michael began his own coaching and management career in 2007.  He is known for a direct and "no-nonsense" approach with a view to being attack-minded and promoting younger players within the club.  He will continue his coaching development at MUSC following previous coaching stints at Chelsea, Noble Park and Dandenong City.

All coaches will work within the Club's coaching group environment and report directly to the MUSC Director of Football.  All coaches will be aiming to further enhance and develop the players representing MUSC at State and Provisional League Squad level in the hope of securing promotion to higher divisions.  The club will hold a "Meet The Coaches" evening prior to Christmas with specific details of the event to be announced in due course.

MUSC welcomes all coaches on board and looks forward to a fruitful working relationship and successful upcoming 2012 season.

Regards,

John Buckley
