The Port Melbourne Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Harold Hetherton to the role of Women’s Coach for the 2019 season.
Following a thorough recruitment process, the Club confirmed the news to attendees at Friday night’s Presentation Night.
Harold is a former captain of the Borough, who had his promising VFA/VFL career cruelly cut short by a back injury.
Since then, Harold has maintained a strong interest and passion in the football club.
Port Melbourne Football Manager Anthony Piccolo was involved heavily in the process, and said that Harold represented an outstanding choice for leading the Port Melbourne women’s program through its second season.
“We’re really pleased with the appointment,” Piccolo said.
“Harold presented really well.
His maturity and professionalism stood out; and we believe he’ll really invest in to the group and make the women’s team and individuals that much better.”
Harold first played for the club in 1987, and captained through seasons 1991 and 1992.
He finished his career with 68 games.
In their inaugural season of football, the Borough women displayed rapid signs of improvement throughout the second half of the year, winning four games.
Skipper Paige Holt was named as the side’s first ever Best and Fairest during Friday night’s Presentation Night.
