New A-Grade Coaches
John Jr Ahkam has been appointed as the new coach for the Manly Brothers A-Grade. He will be ably assisted by Terry Taia and Nick Kisina.
Junior is a previous Manly Brothers player and he led Manly Brothers to the senior premiership in 2007. Since then he has been honing his coaching skills, including working with Manly Sea Eagles legend Cliff Lyons.
The team has already started training for 2017, which has been aided by being able to use their new sponsor’s facilities – The Cube Gym. The gym has a special offer of first TWO WEEKS FREE for 2017 to the first 20 new members… http://www.thecubegym.com.au/january-2017.html
The league has also announced it is considering the option of playing A-Grade games on Satrurdays starting between 5:30 and 6pm rather than Sundays.
New Manly Brothers Under 19 Team
Manly Brothers will have a new Under 19 Team in 2017.
The Coach will be Glen Rota and he will be assisted by Andrew Swann. Both are well known as players in the club and also Glen’s son has played for Manly Brothers Juniors.

The breakfast is scheduled for 10am Wednesday 18th January. Havana’s is on the waterfront at South Steyne in Manly and has the best views over Manly beach.
Keeping fit and sharpening ball skills in the off season
There is a new Junior Gridiron team called the Manly Redbacks, run by previous Manly Brothers player Stephen Armstrong: https://www.facebook.com/ManlyRedbacks/
Their season runs from now until March, so it doesn’t clash with the start of footy and it helps keep our kids fit and developing ball skills.
So if your child wants some fun please bring him along at 5:30pm Wednesday 28th December Condover Reserve, North Balgowlah.
If you have any questions about the sport the club’s contact number is 0420 855 227.
