DSC_0114When the Powelltown Football Club needed an Under 18 coach this year, Steven stepped up as a leader. Steven has, through his patience and determination, created a culture of hard work and a challenging, yet safe environment for the players who all look up to him, and despite not winning a game all year have remained committed and connected. Steve always leads with the values of honesty, respect and integrity.

Barry says: ‘Without Steve’s drive, commitment and passion for his players there would be twenty young men without a football team.’
