WITH all position filled on the committee, the Bomaderry Tigers are proud to announce that Glenn Keys has been reappointed as first grade coach for 2018.

Keys will be assisted by Matt Barnes, with life member and club stalwart Brent Tyrrell putting his hand up to look after the reserve grade side.

During his 228 games for the Tigers, Tyrrell has won five first grade premierships.

Barnes on the other hand, grew up playing football with the Lara Football Club, enjoying premiership success in 1996, before moving to Batemans Bay in 1999 – playing grand finals in from 2000-2002 and winning a premiership in 2001.

Since then, he has spent time with the Albury Tigers, Murray Magpies and Jindera – where he coached an under 17s team to a grand final.

In 2014, he coached Kiama's reserve grade side under James Walton as the senior coach, before guiding the the Albion Park Crows under 14s to their first finals appearance.

Barnes then joined the Tigers in 2017, playing a number of games for the club and is now thrilled to be given the opportunity coach at the club.

Kristy Lee Dickson has been appointed as the inaugural coach of the Bomaderry women's team, with pre-season schedule to be announced soon.

While the committee is very happy with the direction of the club, they are always open to others joining the black and gold.
