2020 Coaching Staff:
The 2020 season will see the Bombers keep the same coaching panel from the previous season.
Brendan Lewis & Corey Shackleton will lead First Grade. Jimmy Newburn will look after Reserve Grade. Murray Schubert & Peter Kelleher for the 3rd year are our Women’s Coaches.

Player Spotlight:
Harley Beckett was our Senior Player of the Year in 2019. He was the winner of this award thanks to his efforts on & off the field. Harley, returning from a knee reconstruction cemented his position in First Grade by round 5 playing full back and had some excellent games. He also was the coach of our under 17s team and did a fantastic job with the future of the Senior Bombers. Not only that he volunteered many more hours to restore and fix the ‘Cool Room’ at the clubhouse which hasn’t worked for many years. It’s people like Harley that make football clubs great to be apart of.

Club Sponsors:
We are very thankful to the people and business that support our club such as:
Mortgage Choice Tumbi Umbi
Diggers @ The Entrance
The Bottle-O Killarney Vale
The Fox Group
The Shower Screen Guy

For next year, we have a big emphasis on player retention, building from within and working with our juniors which we believe is a key factor in long term success.
