A great positive shift has occurred at the Kyneton Showgrounds this year as the Kyneton Football Netball Club works to make noise ahead of the upcoming Bendigo Football Netball League.
The footballers have been on the track for a number of weeks and new coach, Mark Adamson, and the committee have been working hard behind the scenes to revolutionise the club’s culture and status in the competition.
A new list of guys will build on creating a positive culture that will carry the club forward into its next exciting chapter.
“The culture is interesting, it is evolving as we go,” Adamson said.
“We are at a fresh starting point and in a more unique situation where we’re starting from scratch and we want to make that positive.”
This is Adamson’s second stint of starting a new senior club from scratch. He had a big role to play with Bendigo Gold in its debut season in the Victorian Football League last year. He knows how important it is to make a strong, confident and positive presence from the beginning in order to build good foundation for the club to build on for the future. The absence of a senior team hurt the club last season but it has been able to access what it needs to be a formidable force on and off the field for the future.
On the field
The Tigers have been boosted by a number of quality recruits headlined by key position player, Kane Ranstead, from the Western Australian Football League. Adamson is happy with the 26-year-old’s progress after two sessions on the track. He is strong overhead and uses his great height to advantage.
“Key positions players are important and he is about to enter the age gap of where he will play his best football in his career,” Adamson said.
“He has been vocal and supportive on the track and people will look up to guys like that.”
Adamson highlighted that he wants the new list of players, old and new, in this team to be the best leaders they can be. Those in the leadership group will be great leaders as representatives of the club, regardless of what town they live in.
“Things are moving as well as we could have hoped,” Adamson said.
The Tigers will host Macedon Football Netball Club in their opening pre-season hit-out on Saturday, March 15.
