Bombers Announce 2019 Coaching Panel

The Killarney Vale Australian Football Club are pleased to announce their coaching staff for the 2019 season.

The Bombers have appointed stalwarts Corey Shackleton and Brendan Lewis as co-coaches for the upcoming season. Both coaches are Life members of the club, and both were named in the 2018 40th Anniversary team where Corey was also named Vice Captain. Corey is a multiple club Best and Fairest winner and is also a Black Diamond AFL Life Member and was named in their Team of the Decade.

Returning after an improved team performance last year, the Life Member theme continues with the re-appointment of Peter Kelleher and Murray Schubert as co-coaches of the Senior Women’s Team. With Kelleher being a multiple premiership player, and Schubert a Davey medallist, the Bombers believe the Women’s team are in strong and capable hands.  Also after a strong team performance running deep into the Final series, Jimmy Newburn has been re-appointed as Reserve Grade Coach. Newburn has been a very well received addition to the senior coaching ranks and is popular with players young and old.


With a Pre-Season training announcement imminent, the Bombers are very excited to get going and are looking forward to a strong 2019. For more information regarding the Killarney Vale Bombers, head to their website
