After just announcing the Champ Men’s coach in Matt Shanahan for 2020, the Chelsea Gulls announce further signings.
The Chelsea Gulls would like to announce the signing of Mike Funcke as Division 1 Women’s coach and also re-signing Matt Wright and Glenn Wansbrough as Youth Men and Youth Women coaches for 2020. Mike has coached for many years and just recently was assistant coach for Dandenong rangers Men’s team while also having recently been head coach of Division 1 Women at Blackburn. “Mike impressed us immensely with his professional attitude and experience and we felt it was a no brainer to have him lead our women’s program for 2020 and beyond, we also had no hesitation in reappointing Matt & Glenn as their work ethic and efforts last season needed to be rewarded with another season as Youth coaches. We would also like to thank Paul Graham who coached our Women over the last 2 seasons and was fantastic with all he bought to the Gulls and we wish him well and have no doubt he will be an asset to any other club as he was for us. – President Neil Hancock
