Jeff Andrews – Senior Coach
Joff enters his fourth year of his second stint as Senior Coach of the Club in 2017. Macedon gave him his first senior coaching opportunity in 1996 where he lead the team until the end of the 1998 season. In 1999 he was the assistant coach & reserves coach of the Preston Bullants in the VFL. These roles spring boarded him to an assistant coaching role with the Calder Cannons Under 18 team in the TAC Cup, culminating in Jeff’s career highlight, the 2004 premiership. After finishing at Calder at the end of 2004, Jeff focused on his business, Expertform, before being lured back to the Cattery as an assistant in 2013. He has well and truly got the coaching bug back and is enjoying the challenge of developing our players both young and old, and being a positive influence to all involved in the club.
Tom Waters – Senior Playing Assistant Coach
2017 is Tom's first year in the senior coaching group after crossing to Macedon in 2016 from Gisborne.
Tom is no stranger to the RDFL having previously played with Lancefield from 2008 to 2010, winning 2 Bowen medals (2008 & 2010) and a Premiership in that time.
The Bendigo League was certainly the beneficiary when Tom crossed to Gisborne in 2011 as he quickly became the number 1 Ruckman in Country Victoria. Tom represented the Bendigo League 4 times and was also the Vic Country Ruckman on 2 occasions, being part of the Australian Championship winning team in 2012.
Tom's on field leadership and experience at producing in the big games add enormous value to our coaching group.
Simon Jorgensen – Senior Non-Playing Assistant Coach
Simon is new to the Cattery in 2017 & brings with him a wealth of knowledge & experience and a coaching record that includes 6 premierships. Simon, a highly talented & decorated local footballer, started coaching at Balranald in 1994 at the ripe old age of 22, where he won a flag in his first year. Coaching stints at Kangaroo Flat, Robinvale & Lancefield followed and each produced a flag. After some time away from coaching Simon became Assistant coach with Eaglehawk in 2007 & 2008 - both premiership years.
Simon's knowledge of local footy & history of team success make him a great resource for all our players & coaches in their endeavors to improve.
Andrew Bubb – Reserves Coach & Senior Assistant Coach
Andrew comes to us off a successful stint at Romsey as Assistant Coach in their 2015 (Premiership) & then Senior coach in 2016. Andrew is a Level 2 coach with enormous experience at Under 18's, Reserves, Senior & Inter-league level.
He played his Junior footy at Anglesea before moving to Newcastle in his early 20's where he played, coached the Under 18's & became a life member of the Warners Bay football club. After moving back to Melbourne in 2008 Andrew has always been involved in coaching with stints at Keilor Park, Melton and then Romsey.
It's great to have someone so passionate about their footy around developing our young players and working with the coaching team.
Peter Lord – Under 18 Coach
Pete is a mature age plumber running his own business (Trio Plumbing Pty. Ltd). Lordy lives locally & has always had a strong interest in local football which lead to him coaching the Macedon Under 16 side in 2014, finishing the season as Grand Finalists. After going out in straight sets in 2016, Pete is looking to improve and go deep into finals this year with his talented group of Under 18’s, including his own son Jack. Lordy had a very successful playing career with Strathmore, Reservoir Lakeside & Southport. Peter is looking to mentor many future senior players for MFNC and hopefully have some team success with the Under 18’s along the way.
