West Footscray has appointed former Altona Reserves premiership coach Ian Fox as their new senior coach.

Fox, who coached the Vikings to the ultimate success in the Reserves in 2018, takes over from Shane Lucas, who has been at the helm for the past four seasons.

West Footscray say they are excited by the energy, enthusiasm and experience Ian will bring to the club and that they are looking forward to seeing his strong leadership in action as he guides the Roosters through the 2021 season.
