The West Adelaide Football Club is thrilled to announce the appointment of new Centre of Excellence Under 18 Coach, Paul Streatfield.
Paul has worked at Norwood Football Club for 7 years in various roles including Under 16 Head Coach and in 2017 the Under 18 Head Coach.
When asked about moving to Westies, Paul said “The opportunity to work with and lead a group of young men who are highly driven and determined to be the best they can be is extremely exciting.”
“We will hit the ground running in a couple of weeks. My expectation is that everyone involved will display a work rate that is reflective of an elite sporting environment and will reflect the values of the club.”
When asked about Paul, our Talent Manager Jason Porplyzia said “Paul was a standout candidate following our interview process to lead the Centre of Excellence program and help develop our next group of senior footballers.”
“He comes to us with a wealth of experience gained from junior programs at the Norwood Football Club, having held head coaching positions in both their Under 16 and Under 18 programs.”
“Paul’s professionalism and attention to detail are key attributes that will have a major impact on our young footballers, and the staff in the Football Department are keenly looking forward to working alongside him.”
We welcome Paul to West Adelaide and look forward to what he can bring to the club.
