The West Footscray Football Club has announced the re-signing of Senior Men’s Coach Ian Fox for the 2022 Prestige Group Real Estate Division 2 Season.

Fox joined the senior team on the eve of the season. With his passion for footy and strong leadership Fox galvanised the group and will again lead the senior side next year.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity of having a full pre-season to ensure we enter the 2022 season well prepared in terms of fitness, integrating new players into the club as well as coaching and training how we want to play,” Fox said.

“We need to turn around from being competitive for large portions of games to being competitive in the Division 2 competition.

“An exciting new aspect for the 2022 season will be having a young and strong under 18’s team coming into the senior program and the opportunity to work with their coaching team as they develop into future West Footscray Senior players.”

West Footscray finished the 2021 season in eighth place.

Shane Windridge was also announced as the Roosters Senior Women’s coach for the 2022 Victoria University Polytechnic Senior Women’s season.

West Footscray ended the Division 2 season in top spot, claiming the Minor Premiership.

Windridge said he was looking forward to the next season.

“I’m looking forward to an uninterrupted season; where the team can take their development and hard work from the training track into games,” he said.

“Where we can see how the improvement in our skills produces exciting football on the weekend.”
