December 12, 2012 4:20am

Merrigum Football Club takes more steps this Sunday to build on the club’s promising finish to this season when it won eight of its last 10 games.

A meet-the-coaches family day is being staged by the club this Sunday which will follow a light training session for both footballers and netballers starting at 11.30am.

All current players and recruits are invited to attend.

Christian Barnett is again coach of the Merrigum seniors with Josh Stammers again his deputy, but the club has new reserves and thirds coaches.

Senior star and ex-Kyabram player Josh Pell will coach the reserves with last year’s coach Brett McCartney his deputy.

Alan Lowe takes over from Shane McLennan as thirds coach. McLennan is to be the club’s junior co-ordinator.

Experienced sports coaches Graham and Nathan Pell will coach the Merrigum A grade netball side in 2013.

Kath Dawson is the coach of C-grade neball side, Rhonda Lowe will coach the Under 17s and Debbie McArdle the Under 15s.

The only coaching position yet to be filled at the club is the B-grade netball side.

The club has a strong off-field presence again with Greg Pell back for his second term as president, Tony Kilmartin again secretary and Angelo Borelli the new treasurer.

The executive is being backed by a 21-strong committee.
