Coaching Announcement: AJAX FC New Women's Coach
The club is delighted to announce the appointment of our new Women's coach, Tom Humphrey.
Tom joins us with a wealth of playing & coaching experience.
He began his playing career with Box Hill in the VFA in the early eighties and has enjoyed tremendous success as a coach and assistant coach being involved in seven Premierships & ten finals campaigns in his 20+ years of coaching.
"I'm really excited to be working with the Ajax Women's team. I am aware of the success and the passion surrounding the group’s first year and will be working hard to continue their development and continued success", Humphrey said.
"Women's footy is on a big growth curve and I want our girls to take full advantage of the great opportunity that's ahead of us".
Over the last ten years, Tom has coached with Vermont, U15 EFL Representative team, Eastern Rangers in the TAC Cup and most recently as an assistant coach with Box Hill development side in the VFL.
“This is going to be a fantastic challenge and something completely different to the stuff I’ve done before.”
“The girls are as keen to learn skills then any side I reckon I’ve ever coached.”
“It’s all about skill acquisition for the girls in the next couple of years.”
We are thrilled to welcome Tom into the Ajax community and have him working with the Jackettes.
Happy New Year to all!
