MORWELL East Football-Netball Club has welcomed back a familiar face to the role of
senior coach.
Paul Henry, who coached the Hawks from 2010 to 2014, is again in the top job.
Henry takes over from Devon Soutar, and will be out to see Morwell East into finals
action in season 2023.
The Hawks missed finals by percentage this season, edged out by eventual premier Yinnar.
After being tipped by many to win the flag this year, and having arguably the strongest team on paper, a finals miss certainly appeared a shortcoming.
Henry will command the ultimate respect from the playing group, having played 280
games in the brown and gold for two senior premierships.
He previously coached Morwell East to a senior grand final in 2010 and to finals in 2012.
Henry will be able to step into the role with a degree of fresh air, after the Hawks recently
voted down a move to the North Gippsland Football-Netball League.
Club veteran of 300 games, Brad Gibson, will coach the reserves.
