The Yarraville Seddon Eagles have unveiled former AFL star Michael Barlow as their new senior coach.

Barlow, who has been involved with the Werribee Football Club for the past year as a playing assistant coach, will join the Eagles in TIV Division 1 as a playing coach.

The 32-year-old played 141 games with Fremantle and Gold Coast.

He replaces Chris Atkins, who parted ways with the club for personal reasons last month.

Werribee Football Club coach Mark Williams spent the past year working with Barlow.

He said he was a man with a heart of fold, a wonderful teammate and leader.

“As a young coach Mick brought great insight into the modern game and was always ready to have fun and a laugh with the entire playing group and staff” Williams said.

“Yarraville Football Club is very lucky to get such a special player, coach and bloke.”
