SENIOR BRONCOS COACHES ANNOUNCED
The Hume City Broncos are excited to announce the Head Coaches of the Womens program for the 2023 Big V Season.
After taking the Youth Women through several finals’ campaigns, Tim Devlin has been elevated to the Champ Women’s Head Coach position.
Tim started with the Broncos in season 2018, and has developed the squad over those years to become one of the strongest sides in Victorian Championship Women – with a Prelim Final berth this past season, and a 16-4 record in 2021 prior to the season being cancelled.
Of the promotion, Tim said “I’m very happy to take the reigns of the Champ Women for 2023. We have a very talented pool of Junior Broncos coming through the program, and I am very excited to continue working with them and the added talent for this upcoming season.”
The Broncos are also pleased to welcome Mitchell Stoop to the role of Youth Womens Head Coach for the 2023 season.
Mitchell has previously coached Geelong United’s Youth League team for the last few seasons. He has also coached the Deakin University Womens Team to a couple of national titles, and to the BLIA international world cup, coming in 4th place.
Mitchell said he was looking forward to being involved in the Broncos culture. “I am humbled to accept the position and grateful for this opportunity to continue the great success of the Broncos Youth Womens program.”
We would also like to thank Robbie Baldwin as he departs the Broncos. Robbie provided a lot of experience and guidance to the Champ Women program in season 2022. Taking an injury-riddled team to 5th on the ladder in a competitive Champion Womens division.
We wish Robbie good luck in his future endeavours.
In announcing these appointments, Broncos General Manager Luke Lehmann said “We know we have great potential and very talented players and we’re very excited about Tim and Mitchell, along with Clarissa Tomlinson as Director of Coaching Womens Big V, leading the Champ and Youth Womens program to future success.”
The 2023 Big V Season will tip off 18th March.
