Workers’ coach full of confidence

COACH Zac Crowley will be looking for more consistency from Lismore Workers in Far North Coast premier division soccer next year.

Crowley will continue as the club's premier team coach for a second season, with Jonty Miller to take the helm in premier reserves.

This year Workers finished third in the premier division and fourth in the reserves.

Crowley hopes to take the young squad to another level and believes they have the potential to finish in the top two in both grades.

"Season 2015 was a new experience for me as coach of premiers and for many of the younger players it was their first full year in the top grade," Crowley said.

"We played some good football at times but we will be aiming for greater consistency to give us that tougher edge in 2016."

Crowley has been involved as a player and coach at Workers since 2001 so he understands the need for the right blend of ability and determination to be successful.

"We worked hard last season on making sure we achieved our goal of a top- three finish, and the boys showed they were capable of playing an entertaining style of football," he said.

"But more importantly the boys showed a fighting spirit for the team and each other, which helps to foster a positive environment."

Workers' premier division training will start on Tuesday, January 12. New players will be welcome at Richards Oval, next to Lismore Shopping Square, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
