With a 19-8 record and the Minor Premiership, GRANT WALLACE has taken out the Coach of the Year for the East conference. Kilsyth were one of the toughest teams to beat in an extremely competitive East conference, having defeated every team at least once during the year, with the only exception being Nunawading. The Cobras also travelled very well, and finished with a 10-3 away record; equal with Bendigo for the best away record in the entire Men’s competition.
Grant welcomed several new players into the fold over the off season, including the important additions of Fernandez Lockett, Matt O’Hea and eventual SEABL East Youth player of the Year Ryan Bathie. Grant also had the fortune of having one of the League’s premier defenders in East Men defensive player of the year Quincy Henderson on his roster. But unfortunately Kilsyth was not able to progress to the SEABL championship after they lost both the Semi Final and Preliminary Final by a combined total of three points. This is Grant’s third Coach of the Year award.
