New Season Appointments
Please join us in congratulating our newest head coach, Ron Kumar!
Zamantix Rovers FC are pleased to announce exciting coaching appointments for the 2020 season.
Ron Kumar will assume the Head Coach role for the Zamantix Roverines through season 2020 and beyond. Ron brings many years of high level footballing experience to this role. Prior to joining Zamantix Rovers, he played for the AFF powerhouse Central United.
Ron has now been with Zamantix for over 10 years and was recently honoured with a testimonial match. He has been a valued member of the highly successful ‘Z One’ team for a number of seasons and has in recent years been turning out for the Zamantix Old Boys.
Ron brings to the role a great passion for football, the Zamantix Rovers club, and our women’s football program which will be his sole focus at the club moving forward. He is excited about working closely with the team, including current manager, Sophie McGuinness, and he will continue to build on the success that the ladies have already achieved.
David Smith, who has previously coached at Zamantix Rovers and brings with him many years of footballing and coaching experience, will be working closely with Ron and the Roverines (as well as other new and developing coaches) as part of our ongoing development program.
Dave’s involvement will focus around our future development of coaches and managers at Zamantix Rovers and as such strengthens our ability to provide pathways for club members wishing to embark on this journey.
The experience and passion that these two club members will bring to these roles will provide a stable platform for the future of not just the Roverines but women’s football at Zamantix Rovers as a whole, which we consider a key focus of the club’s future strategy.
For clarification purposes, a position in this scheme was offered to a member of the Roverines but was declined. Should any club members be interested in our development programs or coaching, and management roles please do not hesitate to contact me.
We expect to confirm the rest of the coaching and management positions in the coming weeks.
