NEW SENIOR COACH
The Tuggeranong Hawks are pleased to announce Jimmy Rice as the Head Coach of Senior Football for the 2020/21 Canberra AFL seasons. With in excess of 300 First Grade/NEAFL games played, over 200 of which were with the Tuggeranong Football Club, Jimmy brings a wealth of playing experience, including three recent senior premierships with the Ainslie Football Club. Jimmy has extensive Senior coaching experience in Canberra and Narranderra, including coaching the Narranderra Imperial Eagles Football Netball Club to a drought breaking premiership in 2012 and being named the 2017 AFL Canberra Senior Coach of the Year, and more recently was the Senior Assistant Coach during Ainslie’s 2018 and 2019 First Grade premierships. Jimmy has also been an Assistant Coach with the GWS Giants Academy for the past five years demonstrating a strong commitment to developing young AFL players in the ACT and South Coast NSW Regions. The former ACT and Riverina representative player has agreed to taking on the role after an exhaustive selection process.
For the past two seasons, Club Legend and Life Member, Peter “Yoey” Ashcroft has performed the role as Senior Coach of the Tuggeranong Hawks in very difficult circumstances and the Club will be forever indebted to him for his commitment and dedication. Yoey is obviously disappointed but still remains a much loved and highly respected leader at the Hawks and the Club and would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for everything he has done over his significant career and look forward to his continuing involvement in years to come.
