The Marcellin Old Collegians would like to congratulate Matthew Frost and Nick Watty, who have been appointed as Thirds Player/Coaches for 2020.
Matthew started his career in the Under 19s, where he found himself out of the side on numerous occasions. He spent the next few years floating between positions in the Thirds, until he settled into a Ruck/Defensive role in 2019. Making a few Reserves appearances, Matthew has been able to provide consistently for the Thirds over the last few years.
Nick has had quite a bit more success than his fellow coach, as he has shone consistently in both the Reserves and Thirds. A forward presence, Nick has also shown a knack for playing defensive football as the tandem of himself and Nick Raso made the Thirds a force to be reckoned with in their 2018 finals push. Nick comes with a lot of football experience, as he reached the 100 game milestone in the 2019 season.
As we welcome these two boys to the role, we thank the former coach, Lewis Chiodo, for his work with the Marcellin Old Collegians. Lewis was a valued member in his three years with the club, and gathered respect from almost any person of the Marcellin community he encountered. Lewis’ contribution to this club has not gone unnoticed, and we wish him the best in his future endeavours.
We congratulate Matthew and Nick on their appointment, and wish them the best in 2020.
