Alistair Meldrum

Senior Coach

This is Al’s second stint of Senior Coaching at Macedon FNC having been Senior Playing Coach from 2011-2013.

Al has a long association with the club, first playing with the Juniors way back in 1989! In addition to coaching he has also held executive committee positions over the years giving him well rounded experience in Club Operations and priorities pertaining to Community Sport.

He is passionate about coaching and the development of players, not just on the field, but also providing support off it. Building relationships, developing mutual trust and respect, leadership and culture are all fundamental elements in Al’s overall philosophy.

Al enjoyed a long and fulfilling local football playing career which included 4 Senior Best & Fairest’s, and a RDFNL Bowen Medal. His highlight so far, being a Senior Playing Premiership Coach at Heathcote in Season 2009.

Now he is looking forward to coaching from the sidelines and providing young kids and adults with the opportunity to be part of a sustainable, community focused club at Macedon.
