Stephen Arthur has been reappointed as the Bloods' senior coach for season 2015LUKE MCMANUS August 22, 2014 4:00pm
Elmore Football Club has reappointed senior coach Stephen Arthur for the 2015 season.
Arthur, who joined the club in November, has another crack at shaking the Bloods’ easybeat tag after agreeing to terms on Tuesday.
The first-year coach copped the brunt of a winless 2014 amid a wave of pre-season player departures and recurring injuries to key players.
With all its roster woes the club has managed just one win in two season, claiming consecutive wooden spoons.
Despite another disappointing season Arthur was resolute and remained positive about next year’s outlook.
‘‘There were a number of factors which took their toll,’’ Arthur said.
‘‘When I got there the club was divided and lacking confidence so we needed to work on getting the off-field side of things right.
‘‘We might not have won any games this season but the culture at the club is back, our supporters are behind us and were all united down there.
‘‘I’m pretty excited about next year and want to be a part of it.’’
Arthur believed the club was capable of winning ‘‘about five or six games’’ next season and was hopeful on retaining most of its list.
With Arthur’s signature locked away, an earlier recruiting drive and consolidated approach to next season should eradicate issues the club’s committee faced 12 months ago.
Elmore president Andrew Holmberg said Arthur’s appointment was only the first step, with the club yet to hold talks with reserves coach Ben Makepeace.
